Summary "Eero Saarinen's TWA Terminal stands as the ultimate icon of midcentury modern design. Commissioned in 1956 and completed in 1962, the bird-like terminal at New York's John F. Kennedy Airport was intentionally designed as an eye-catching showpiece that would capture the public's imagination. Its expressionistic concrete exterior and soaring interior spaces did just that, making it one of the most dramatic architectural statements of its day."--BOOK JACKET. "Time and expedience have taken tolls on the building. As it has been adapted to the needs of contemporary air travel, the terminal has fallen into disrepair and lost much of the grandeur that made it a symbol of all that was modern and new. Ezra Stoller's sharp-eyed photographs offer a return trip to the terminal at the time of its opening, when dapper travelers moved smartly through its majestic spaces."--BOOK JACKET
