The Office of Public Works began design on an airport terminal for Collinstown, Co. Dublin, in 1936. The design team was led by Desmond FitzGerald, a recent graduate, and the terminal is considered to be Ireland’s most important pre-war International Style building. With an arc-shaped plan, the landward approach was solid, with a glazed double-height entrance in the centre and a series of small windows along the wings. On the other side, expansive views to the runways were provided by a much higher ratio of glazing. An icon of the golden age of air travel.
