Dulles Airport design

The main terminal at Dulles Airport, designed by Eero Saarinen and built from 1958 to 1962, is a masterpiece of mid-century modern design. Even the utilitarian back areas, housing offices, storerooms, and other non-passenger stuff, follow the sweeping, angled planes of Saarinen's concept. I drew this while waiting for a friend to arrive on a delayed flight. Airport workers taking their breaks watched me draw with fascination.

There won't be any new By-products for the next few days as I am at a conference this weekend. Thank you for your support.
