Airports are among the most complex buildings in the world. Their design must enable efficient flow of baggage and passengers, satisfy safety requirements, and support thousands of employees. Passengers must be guided through buildings intelligently – but sometimes not too rapidly. With retail comprising 27% of an airport’s non-aeronautical income, often compensating for other shortfalls, it’s also vital that visitors have time to shop.
