TWA Terminal #6
Eero Saarinen’s masterpiece, the TWA Flight Center at JFK airport. This building is a mid century jewel, a beautiful yet functional building that served as a terminal until 2001. I stayed at the hotel for two days during the early stages of the pandemic, waiting for my flight back to Los Angeles. It was deserted, because of the pandemic. It was a unique opportunity to see this architectural wonder undisturbed by masses of people and noise. The dynamic, endlessly curving shapes, the mid-century style, the instant evocation of an era when travel was a luxury – it was all there. The evening and night brought soft light, interior curves were strong, small recesses were dark, the TWA signs in their bright red contrasted to the grey concrete.
The brilliant Arrivals/Departures spaceship at the main entrance to the terminal. The circle patterns from the counter to the sign and up to the roof all work in a way that draws the eye upward. The lighting from the ceiling enhances the shapes at night.
