I must say that is a nice little building. I have never noticed it before. Its quirky in the sense that it manages to express an international style redolent of its era, whilst at the same time offering fleeting glimpses of the older 1930s terminal.

Interesting that this was chosen as phase 2 of Dublin airport. I seem to recall seeing an illustration years ago, possibly in an exhibition of plans in the Irish Architectural Archieve, that showed a Prof Fitzgerald design to build a second eliptical building on the land side of the old terminal. They would have been linked by various bridges, but given the similarity in designs, the overall effect would have been of a circular terminal.
