Thanks for the images. Eero Saarinen has been my favorite architect since I was a child. He designed the Dulles International Airport in Northern Virginia. If you look at the interior of the TWA terminal with the bridge, you may notice a similarity between that style and the village from the original Planet of the Apes. Men In Black also borrowed his style for creating the look of MIB headquarters.
