The Trans World Airlines Flight Center (aka TWA terminal) that was part of the now JFK International Airport was an iconic example of mid-century modern design that, unfortunately, most of us never had the chance to enjoy during its heyday. As part of a new project by MCR Development (the same group responsible for The High Line Hotel), the terminal is being transformed into the TWA Hotel, the first on-site, full-service hotel at JFK International Airport. The idea of more than 500 guestrooms, 50,000 square feet of conference / event space, eight different restaurants / bars, a TWA / mid-century modern design museum and a 10,000 square foot public observation deck being being part of one iconic building near one of the most frequented airports is great, but the way they’re doing it is even better. The complete rehab of the national landmark is focused on restoring it to the way it was during the glory days after iconic designers Eero Saarinen, Charles Eames, Raymond Loewy and Warren Platner all had their hands in its creation.
