Classic Video of the Month : The Expanding Airport

This great short video (under 10 minutes) produced by Charles and Ray Eames (amongst the most important furniture designers of the 20th century) presents the concept of Dulles Airport presented by Eero Saarinen.  This short carton clearly presents both the concept of the mobile lounge as well as modernist optimism in a entertaining way that includes rockets, space ships and even a man reading a Playboy magazine.  The times certainly have changed.
