    Cosmic TWA Hotel designed by legendary Eero Saarinen

    The current TWA Hotel, the former terminal of Trans World Airlines (TWA), is in the New York JFK Airport. The original terminal was built in 1962 by the prominent Finnish-American architect Eero Saarinen. The TWA Terminal or the TWA Flight Center is one of the most forward-looking architectural forms that Eero Saarinen created and an outstanding example of structural expressionism in general, one of the most expressive styles of the XXth century.
