Some of my photos of the TWA Terminal at JFK are in a new book called Featherweights: Light, Mobile and Floating Architecture, published by Prestel. The text of the book has that translated-from-German feel, but it's still quite readable, and there are lots of pretty pictures of buildings, which is what really counts.

One of the same photos is on the cover of a new textbook from Prentice-Hall, which is not a great read.

A recent article about the terminal from Manhattan User's Guide talks about the controversy over plans to alter the building. The article points out that the terminal is on the National Trust for Historic Preservation's list of 11 most endangered historic places.

Laura's story is too good to be true.
