PLANE—SITE spoke with Agatha Kessler (Chairman) and Curtis Fentress (Design Principal) from Fentress Architects, among others, about their student competition. Fentress Global Challenge encourages students to reimagine the airport typology and how people occupy public spaces.
This year’s challenge was to envision “The Airport of the Future.” Exceeding 600 registrations, the award drew students from over 50 countries. The hope of Fentress Architects is that students, being more removed from the practicalities of completing an airport, could produce refreshing and inspiring ideas that even accomplished architects would not realize.
