  1. Washington Dulles International Airport!! ❤
    I think there is a new part and an old part…
    The new one is really cool !!

    • Yes, Dulles recently completed their big redevelopment project (which includes a tram system that does away with their classic “mobile lounge” fleet). I was impressed at how well they melded the new design with the old, all while improving energy/operational efficiency.

      The Washington Metro system is STILL so 70’s looking! It fits well in DC, though, where many of the government buildings are of similar design.

      Glad you like our blog!

    • Thanks Nadia! Glad you like the post. The Dulles airport is one of the best!
