Corner Guards Arrive, Cracked Walls Depart
Airports see tens of thousands of people from all over the world daily, this is the place where you say goodbye or hello, cry and laugh. We all get lost in them, eat food in them and try to get out of them as soon as we possibly can. We stand in unending lines, take off our shoes and heaven forbid have a little too much shampoo.
Airports are possibly one the most complicated buildings to plan, simply because of the volume of people you have to cater for and the amount you have to take into consideration because of this. The average airport has a massive parking area, inside, outside, underground and above ground. These have to be built in accordance with your terminal’s departure and arrival gates. Then it gets even more complicated, you have to take into account that people will want to eat and drink, at each one of the terminals. Bathrooms, restaurants and lounges (for the high rollers). The list goes on and on. if you take the amount of passengers of each airline into account, that is still not the number the airport building has to support. Mom, dad, the siblings and the best friend will all accompany the traveler there, to eat, drink, laugh and finally say hello or goodbye. You will have a cart to put your bags onto and maybe you’ll give two rowdy kids a lift down a ramp. This is in addition to all of the hidden areas of the airport and the thousands of workers who make the airport run on a 24/7 basis.
The people, suitcases, carts and airport shuttles all cause the building harm at one point or another. Airport buildings are one of the most expensive and used in the world. Thus, when building, you have to take the future of the structure into account. It has to keep up to standard, look good and be functional for the next 20 years or more. This is where we come in!
