This studio will explore the changing role of and emergence of next generation airports, airport architecture and their aesthetics. Students will develop awareness of the different paradigms that have informed airport architecture and explore approaches to consider the next generation of airports. The studio will facilitate a better understanding of how to generate large-scale airport architecture. And address and investigate individual approaches to design and design generators.
The studio will help/encourage students to become aware of and understand how it is that they personally go about making architecture. Students will be enabled to embark on a reflective and critical process on how they think about architecture, the city and air transportation through the process of creating airport architecture.
