Trans World Airlines Terminal, John F. Kennedy Airport

Eero Saarinen

1956-63


The flowing, curvilinear forms which define this airport terminal align this work with expressionist architecture. The forms symbolically suggest flight. Interior spaces are also open and flowing.
 
Reinforced concrete makes these wing-like "sails" possible.
