1962 TWA Terminal at JFK Airport

It’s always commendable when a person creates something that will stand the test of time, and be considered just as remarkable in 50 years as it was when it was originally conceptualized. The TWA Flight Center is Eero Saarinen’s impressively designed terminal at JFK Airport from 1962, a space that is still discussed and admired at length by modern architects.

The historic, beloved landmark has been off limits to the public since 2001, and it is now set to be redeveloped into a boutique hotel. But as a work of architecture, the TWA Flight Center serves as Saarinen’s last building, as it was actually completed after his death in 1962. It’s now a special place for architectural admiration, as it was an extraordinary and uniquely-designed structure. And since it is being re-purposed into a hotel, it’s probable that some of the building’s quirks will be utilized and kept intact for future hotel guests to enjoy and marvel at. [Via]
