A behind-the scenes look at a dozen of the most innovative airport terminals in the world
Airport terminals have emerged as the most important public buildings of the twenty-first century. They are essential hubs for both contemporary commerce and our personal lives, but what shapes the design of these places where we spend so much time? Stantec: Airports provides a behind-the-scenes look at a dozen of the world’s most innovative contemporary airport terminals. One of the largest global design firms, Stantec’s reputation for creativity in all aspects of airport design began with an unprecedented series of terminals for Vancouver International Airport, which regularly tops public and industry surveys as one of the best in the world. The lavish photography, newly prepared architectural drawings, and engaging text also explore Stantec’s remarkable design work for airports in Edmonton, Winnipeg, Ottawa, Iqaluit, Toronto, Santiago (Chile), Nassau (Bahamas), Niagara Falls (New York), and a border-straddling facility for San Diego–Tijuana. This book is not just for the airport industry and architects but will engage the imagination and curiosity of every member of the flying public.
