Philip Kennicott wrote an interesting review of the new PBS program “Ten Buildings that Changed America” [“Top 10 list fails to impress,” Style, May 10]. But I have one quibble from a historic perspective.
Kennicott wrote, “No mention is made of how locals mostly loathe the moving lounges at [Eero] Saarinen’s Dulles Airport.” When the airport opened, we loved the mobile lounges. The airline timetables showed mobile lounge departure times. We simply crossed the main concourse and boarded them. The short distance was a plus for seniors and those in wheelchairs. The lounges took us directly to the planes, and we boarded. There was nothing like this anywhere in the world.
