R.I.P. Terminal 6
A few days back we were administering the last rites to JFK's Terminal 6. And now, it is gone forever. I.M Pei's Sundrome got knocked down not long ago, leaving a modernist hole in both the airport and our hearts. Pretty sad day for all fans of modernism and architectural diversity in our major institutions. The new function for the site will be an extension of Terminal 5 and additional boarding gates and aircraft parking. Sigh.
