The article focuses on the history of the Dulles International Airport in Washington, D.C., which was built to make the capital as another entry point to America aside from New York City. The President John F. Kennedy commented that the modernist style of Dulles International Airport is a foreigner's first impression of the U.S. The author says the design challenge for the airport was to come up with something that is both part of and a departure from the architectural tradition of the capital.
