Fentress Architects Design Competition Invites Students to Envision an Airport of the Future

Fentress Architects, based in Denver, Colo., has announced the 2018-2019 Fentress Global Challenge, an international design competition for young and student architects. As in years past, the theme is consistent with the firm’s expertise in airport design and aviation, challenging applicants to envision an airport of the future.

Participants are encouraged to re-envision the terminal building in the year 2075, using some of the world’s busiest international airports as a framework. Some of the aspects students will have to take into consideration are local context, technological trends, project feasibility and passenger experience.
