HUMAN DIMENSION IN AIRPORT DESIGN

Design criteria for airports are discussed in the context of the human response to airports. The real and complex logistic problems of moving planes, people, baggage and cars must be translated into spaces that are an uplifting human environment. Organization of spaces must be achieved to counterbalance the inevitable confusion and anxiety of the situation. Departure rooms should be designed to give special consideration to the seating arrangement, so that there is a maximum of diversity. This article is included in Building Types Study 468, which also describes airports in Cincinnati, Newark, and Toronto.
