The fundamental design of an airport hasn’t changed much since commercial aviation took off after World War II. Much of the reason for that is the fact the fundamental design of commercial airplanes hasn’t changed much either. When a Denver architecture firm held a design contest for the airport of the future, it wanted students to imagine an airport serving whatever kind of aircraft they could imagine. No one wanted to limit designs to the airplanes we fly in today, or we will fly in during the foreseeable future. (via Futuristic Airports Unhindered By the Baggage of Reality | Autopia | Wired.com)
