The romance and the drama of air travel, aided in no small part by the advent of the jet engine, has left its architectural legacy. Think iconic buildings like Eero Saarinen’s TWA Terminal at New York’s JFK, for instance. But along came the 747 and mass transportation by air led to, well, mass airport construction on the ground, not all of it good. Norman Foster’s 1991 Stansted Airport changed all that, its paradigm-shifting design blazing a trail for high-tech-architectural projects worldwide. Architonic takes to the skies to investigate.
