Welcome to Curbed's new weekly round-up of architecture and design on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and (god forbid) even LinkedIn. Collected from retweets, intra-office chats, and, well, anything that sent us into a 140-character tizzy, this is what Curbed editors saw on social last week. Please be in touch if you have a recommendation for next week.
Our editors were on the scene at this weekend's Open House New York events, which included a tour of Eero Saarinen's stellar TWA Flight Center at John F. Kennedy International Airport. This was the public's last chance to see the terminal, which opened in 1962, before it becomes the TWA Flight Center Hotel. Check out our Instagram account and the hashtag#ohnywknd for more snaps from Open House New York.
The reverberant acoustics at MOMA are part of what makes the experience so unpleasant. Like a huge art-filled public restroom.— Justin Davidson (@JDavidsonNYC) October 13, 2015
New York magazine architecture and classical music Justin Davidson had this to say about the city's Museum of Modern Art and a fellow tweeter responded with a picture of Marcel Duchamp's famous "Fountain" urinal sculpture. We'll just leave it at that.
Artist and illustrator Lisa Congdon has been in Portugal, for the last bit and her snaps of winding medieval streets and contemporary architecture—like Rem Koolhaas's Casa da Música—are great. Check 'em out!
Amazing. But a wreck. pic.twitter.com/9RnZXq5UPh— Michael Kimmelman (@kimmelman) October 17, 2015
Speaking of travel: It sure seems like a lot of people are in Tokyo these days. New York Times architecture critic Michael Kimmelman hit up quite a few of the city's contemporary architectural treasures last week. Head on over to his account for the full tweetstorm.

It blows my mind that the 1991 edition of From Bauhaus to Our House has a quote from People on the cover. pic.twitter.com/9KwiztNcmZ— Chappell Ellison (@ChappellTracker) October 12, 2015
"Just the idea that People Magazine once had an opinion on an essay/rant against the origins and state of modern architecture." 'Nough said.
