'Airworld' exhibition

Glasgow’s Tramway arts centre is currently hosting the only UK showing of ‘Airworld’ from the Vitra Design Museum. This superb major exhibition charts the evolution of not only the passenger aeroplane, but everything from cabin interiors, uniforms, logos and onboard tableware. There’s a surprisingly high architectural coverage, with models of iconic terminals such as Eero Saarinen’s New York TWA terminal, Berlin’s Tempelhof, and Charles de Gaulle in Paris. The library holds the catalogue of the exhibition, which runs until May 27 and is part of the Six Cities Design Festival.
