American Airlines Terminal

American Airlines’ new 2.2.-million-square-foot terminal complex called for an average of 200 shop drawings a week. Now the largest terminal at JFK International Airport, it features a dramatic roof structure of exposed long-span, tri-chord steel trusses that climb to a height of 90 feet.
