AIRPORTS | White Elephants in the Room :: Aéroport International Montréal-Mirabel International Airport ::: 1975-2004, R.I.P.
For architecture, transportation, and graphics aficionados everywhere, I’d like to point you in the direction of the always excellent Franny Wentzel’s post of an entire Transport Canada brochure from 1978 extolling the many virtues of Montréal’s doomed second airport.
It’s delicious stuff from the seventies when design still played a role in shaping Canada’s identity and autonomy. Oh, and it’s about the airport’s many features, too.
