An Eames Idea That Didn’t Fly: The Expanding Airport

Here’s a gem from the MCM archives (via Visual News): “‘The Expanding Airport’ was created for the presentation of the new international airport for Washington, D.C. in 1958. Through familiar sounds and experiences, comparisons and basic infographics, the Eameses were able to distill complex concepts into something digestible and clear.”

I want these mobile airport lounges to get made RIGHT NOW. I would also like this narrator to follow me around and narrate my life.
