You never forget your first building- the one that made you know, in your heart of hearts, the ineffable power of architecture to evoke emotion through space. Last week I got to ‘meet’ the building that started my love affair with architecture, when I was allowed access to the TWA terminal – designed in 1962 by Eero Saarinen. Although being restored the building has lost none of its iconic splendor. The curves of the design create exhilaration for an airport terminal design that has never been bettered. The original departures board rising up out of an information desk like the head of an alien was breathtaking.
