SEA-TAC INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT: SITE CONSTRAINTS DETERMINE TRANSIT SYSTEM AND STATION DESIGN

An airport is a system of elements all interacting on one another at various levels. It is not a service of discrete elements assembled on one site. The terminal design evolves from an analysis of the many aspects of passenger demand, site conditions, parking conditions, airline and other operational requirements, etc., and recognition of the extent to which these forces interact. This paper discusses the site constraints and physical requirements of the transit system as they interacted with the other airport requirements in the shaping of the design of the terminal area facilities and in the process shaped the transit system and station themselves.
