Discussion Stansted Airport Commentary

The Creator's Words

"The design of the new terminal at Stansted Airport has been influenced by two important factors. The first is the opportunity, in the context of a new site, to reconsider the configuration of an airport building from first principles. The second is the relationship of the building to its surroundings."

— from Foster and Partners
