More About the Worst Airport In America

New, 25 comments

While the blogs have been atwitter with the news that LAX is the butt-ugliest airport with the worst amenities in all of America according to Dwell magazine, there are some positive things to say: The magazine allows that the Theme Building (designed by William Pereira and Charles Luckman with help from Paul Williams and Welton Becket) is "LAX’s only architectural positive." But more about the bashing: Dwell also hates the overcrowding, the limited seating, and the lack of clear signage and amenities. With LA as a major hub to Asia and the Middle East, Dwell (rightfully) feels LAX is missing a major opportunity: "The scene ought to be inspired and dynamic, rather than stressful and depressing." It wasn't always so bad: Back in 1988, Money magazine ranked LAX as the 3rd best airport to fly through. But apparently Fentress Architects' new design can't come fast enough. [Dwell]
