ARCHITECTS' IDEAS FOR AIRPORT DESIGN

The importance is noted of flexibility which is one of the most common concepts among airport architects. The reasons for its importance are: air transportation accommodation needs keep changing to the point of being difficult to anticipate; the mix of transportation at the airline terminal interface is becoming more complex. Problems related to intermodality are discussed as well as other transportation requirements at the terminal such as room for automobiles, buses, etc. Comments are made on the need for intra-terminal transportation, and on the economics of the intermodal terminal.
