Rubb was contracted to produce a architectural tensioned fabric roof for a baggage claim area at John F. Kennedy International Airport in Jamaica, NY.
This custom facility was designed with special attention to appearance and charisma. With a span of 70ft and a length of 96ft, the building was intended to imitate the shape of the International Arrivals Building, which was eventually remodeled and renamed as Terminal 4.
Embellished with an arched roof and five symmetrical pillars, the continuity and presentation of the facility preserved the integrity and classic elements of architectural design at JKF. Although the facility was temporary, the quality of aesthetics was maintained and JFK is known to this day for being one of the most beautiful airports in the United States.
