Behind the Scenes at the TWA Flight Center, JFK Airport19/07/2012
Originally opened in 1962, the TWA Flight Center at John F. Kennedy Airport is a brilliant - and sadly, often overlooked - piece of architecture, designed by Eero Saarinen. One of his last works, completed posthumously, the TWA Flight Center was happily saved from the wrecking ball in 2003 by the National Trust for Historic Preservation. The lines, curves and flow of the design provide a completely unique experience for visitors, one which can have the effect of transporting one to a different time - a time when the aviation industry was proud, optimisitic and exclusive.
