Bilbao Airport

You can't really tell from this picture, but the airport in Bilbao, Spain, is amazing. Futuristic, mod in a 1960s/Mad Men sort of way. It reminded me of LAX's Encounter Restaurant, but the whole thing was like that. Very Jetsons without being cloying. Mid-century modern without irony. We never made it to the much-talked-about Guggenheim in Bilbao, designed by our Los Angeles homeboy Frank Gehry, but I'd like to think that the airport, in its own way, gave us a taste of what Bilbao's all about.
