More About This Title Airport Interiors - Design for Business


Airport Interiors provides essential background into the development of the airport business and the design of its interior spaces, whether it is through the masterplanning of circulation spaces or interior finishes. The book explains how the global airport market developed and why; who the main architectural influences are; and how interiors have made a commercial difference to how airports are regarded by their operators. The book also explains the financial effects of post 9/11 on today’s airports in the USA, Europe and the Far East, and why airport operators are looking to the internal spaces as their greatest business asset. Lusciously illustrated Airport Interiors is highly attractive to anyone interested in design.
