As an Ayn Rand fan I have to say that Mr. Roark would not be all to pleased with the exterior architecture that you described. Too much of the modern architecture in Manhattan lacks vision or class. I always find my eyes drifting to classic pre-war buildings with their intricate details and elegance.


Rob, I agree. I think Howard Roark would have regarded the airport architecture with outrage, as a sympton of the stifling establishment he confronted in The Fountainhead.

Even with an imaginative interior - or perhaps because of that - I reckon he would have reacted to it in exactly the same way, I suspect the outcome for him would have been the same.

Think yourself lucky you didn't go to Terminal 1 - that one really is ugly!


I'll remenber that tip the next time I travel to Paris! Thanks, Stuart.

Paul Holmes

If Roark would have hated it, I feel almost obliged to love it, even though I agree. I always figured CdeG was the reason they invented the Eurostar.


If Eurostar had an Amsterdam/Paris service, Paul, I would have taken it! There is Thalys, which is as fast as Eurostar (and the trains are as spiffy-looking) and which I sometimes travel in.

The problem is that the rail network between Brussels and Amsterdam can't yet handle really high-speed service. Between Brussels and Paris, though, it's 300km an hour nearly all the way.

Anyway, to your comment about Roark. So you're aligned with Peter Keating's thinking?
