Max Touhey captures the striking architecture of abandoned TWA Terminal
Photographing abandoned buildings is a grateful topic; vast, derelict spaces, ruinous fittings, signs of nature slowly taking back its space provide scenic, cinematographic settings. On Max Touhey’s pictures of the closed TWA Terminal (JFK Airport), however, architecture itself is taking the leading role. No wonder, as the space designed by Eero Saarinen in the early 60s is truly stunning and marvelously futuristic even for a 21st century eye. Featuring organic concrete structures, and deep red upholstery and textiles, Saarinen’s building is a study in neofuturist architecture. The swinging curves evoke the sense of flying and wings, and turn the terminal into a sanctuary of the golden age of air travel. The terminal ceased its operation in 2001, and now there are news about a possible rebirth in the form of a boutique hotel. Touhey’s captivating series will definitely draw attention to the construct and foster the reconstruction of the building that is open to the public as well, not only to a camera.
