AIRPORT IN A GARDEN

The special features are described of the Norfolk regional airport which is designed for compatibility with the adjoining botanical garden. A huge earth berm built along the perimeter of the airport separates it from the gardens. It is being thickly planted with trees and bushes to shield the gardens from airport sights and sounds. Suitable exterior and interior finishes are used to blend the airport into the surrounding woodlands. The concealing of parking lots, the individual adjustment of loudspeakers, public waiting lobbies, and the access road system which reduces surface traffic congestion are described.
