Summer Semester //2014 // GSAPP // Columbia University

Cheap air travel is now the future with cheaper air flights and faster paces of life more people can fly, meaning more people in the sky. The idea of a fast airport aims to cut down waiting times for passengers, and act as a small fast transit station.

The design attributes its corrugations through early model investigations from plastic water bottles. The corrugations are incorporated into the design as a bifurcated network that forms a structural system.
