athens old airport

Eero Saarinen (1910-1961) began the design for Athens Airport (1960-69) after his more famous airport terminal buildings for TWA in New York (1956-62) and Dulles in Chantilly, Virginia (1958-63) were already underway. Instead of the soaring, curvilinear forms of these works, Saarinen opted for a more restrained design at Athens.
