“'It would make a beautiful ruin.' Eero Saarinen [T]he Port Authority closed the exhibition after the 'controversial' opening night party. Initiated as a form of 'dedication to the building' the exhibition explored themes drawn from the history and nature of travel, and responded to the significance of the architecture itself.
The catalogue is a secondary site for participating artists, writers and critics to engage with ideas raised by the exhibition and air travel. Designed by David Reinfurt, ORG, it is divided into three sections: architectural history, exhibition information, and air travel related essays, and balances extensive visual material related to the site and the exhibition with critical and historical texts." -- publisher's statement.
