Ever wonder what airports will look like 50 years from now?
Well, here is an opportunity to put that imagination to work. Fentress Architects is hosting its annual international design competition, and entrants are being asked to produce the most innovative concept for an airport terminal in 2075. The winner will also score a sweet $10,000.
Participants of the Fentress Global Challenge (FGC) are being encouraged to reconstruct the current day airport terminal by improving its “every dimension.” Meaning that entries should focus on either mobility, urbanization, globalization, technology, flexibility, security, project feasibility and passenger experience. These ideas can be displayed in photographs, diagrams, renderings, animations, collages or other visualizations.
As for the designs themselves, they must center on one of these airports or one of comparable size: Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL), Beijing Capital International Airport (PEK), London Heathrow International Airport (LHR), Chicago O’Hare International Airport (ORD), Tokyo Haneda Airport (HND), Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport (CDG), Dallas/Fort Worth Airport (DFW), Frankfurt Airport (FRA) and Hong Kong International Airport (HKG).
