Project #83212 - Terminal Design Concept


The purpose of an airport terminal is to accommodate passengers transferring between ground transportation and the facilities that they use to board and disembark from aircraft. There are a variety of airport terminal designs used in airports throughout the world. Before an efficient terminal design is selected, an in-depth analysis examining possible considerations is conducted. In this assignment you will examine many terminal design concepts and select an appropriate terminal design based on the considerations given.


A new airport is being constructed. Research a variety of airport terminal design concepts. Examine the advantages and disadvantages of each design. After careful analysis of the considerations below you will have the opportunity to decide which terminal design concept would be most appropriate to use at your new airport and why. After you have selected a terminal design concept (or a hybrid of designs) write a 1-2 page summary of why you selected this particular design and why it is the most appropriate and efficient design given the considerations.
