Is there a larger picture anywhere? I need a magnifying class to see the one on that website.

It looks interesting in that they will be building one long terminal against the old TWA terminal, but I would like to see a bigger picture.  Insane

The design is very close to the original "bigger" design from '99-'00, this one is about half the size.

Check out the renderings I posted on this thread..

Those photos are much better with bigger picture. It is very good picture with their new terminal 5. It will make replace with TW terminal.

I have always like the Saarinen TWA building ever since I first saw it in the early 70's. It was breath taking.

I rather like the plan, to make it the centerpiece of a new, larger complex. Unfortunately, the huge windows won't see anymore aircraft, but some compromises have to be made.
That picture of it's current state looks quite nice. At least it's not dilapidated.

So if TWA just stopped using it just a few years ago, what was its purpose then? What it used as a proper terminal? Pardon my ignorance, I just haven't been through JFK in years. Regards

In TWA's final days, T5 was used for regular operations and flights, and worked okay for them, but once AA took over, T5 was shut down because it was not good for operations, for reasons previously mentioned. It cannot be torn down because it is a landmark.
