if someone put a gun to my head and said ‘pick your favorite architect from the 20th century’ i would probably pick eero saarinen. which is not to malign any of the other remarkable 20th century architects. but i’ve always loved eero saarinen.
one of my favorite things about flying in and out of d.c is being able to see dulles airport, which was designed by eero saarinen in the late 50’s.
so, as i was rushing to get to my flight on sunday (unfortunately i had to leave d.c early)i stopped to take some pictures of what might be the world’s second most beautiful airport (the first would be eero saarinen’s twa terminal at jfk, or so i believe).
so here are a few pictures of the world’s most beautiful airport as designed by my favorite 20th century architect.
