Description

Completed in 1962, the TWA Flight Center at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York City is an iconic piece of mid-century modern architecture. It was designed by architect and industrial designer Eero Saarinen in a neofuturistic style. Neofuturism is an offshoot of midcentury modernism which draws from architectural styles such as Art Deco, Googie, and sought mix ethical principles with art and technology to create better quality of life. In the exterior wing shape of the building as well as the flow of its interior spaces, the architect sought to reflect the aviation industry and the sensation of flight itself in a way that TWA could use to advertise the airline industry. Designers such as Charles Eames, Raymond Loewy and Warren Platner worked with Saarinen on the interior design of the building.
