The Fentress Global Challenge Deadline: 2019-05-31
Award: $10,000
Open to: Engineering and Architect Students*

Airport terminals have been criticized for employing generic architectural forms that are unapologetically disconnected from their context and cultural identity. Technical complexity and functional design have often taken precedence over quality and comfort for users.

Participants of the FGC are encouraged to re-envision the terminal building in the year 2075.Concepts will integrate Fentress' Touchstone 2: Use context to create identity.

In line with the speculative nature of the competition, participants should seek to improve every dimension of the airport terminal building. All entries should delve into one or more broad topic related to airport architecture and the future of aviation such as mobility, urbanization, globalization, technology, flexibility, security, project feasibility, and passenger experience in 2075.
