Skyline of the World
Mural at the American Airlines Terminal @ JFK Airport, New York
Depicting recognizable, landmark architecture alongside lesser known buildings from more than 70 cities throughout the world, Skyline of the World is a monumental drawing commissioned by American Airlines for its new Terminal 9 at John F. Kennedy International Airport. Geometry and geography fade away, cities appear and disappear, and the foreground does not necessarily obstruct the background. At 397 feet long, and spanning more than one and half city blocks, this beautifully detailed panoramic drawing inspires travelers to create their own travel memories and reminds us of the interconnectedness of our world.
