Life, Death and Rebirth of the TWA Flight Center

May 24, 2016

Vacant for nearly 15 years, the Eero Saarinen-designed TWA Flight Center will possibly be starting a new chapter soon as a hotel, restaurant, and conference center facility. Richard Southwick, the Director of Historic Preservation for Beyer Blinder Belle Architects, will explore the historic context in which the TWA Terminal was designed as a centerpiece of JFK International Airport and the design process Saarinen undertook for the building and its critical acclaim signifying it as a Modern icon. The talk will examine the history of the terminal, which led to the preservation efforts to save the building, its recent restoration, and the current redevelopment process.
