Identity of the Airport – an Architect’s Design Workshop

As a gateway to a city, how does the architecture of an airport create an identity for those arriving and departing, a city and a nation? A key driver in our architectural expression and design philosophy is the link and reference to the local culture and heritage of an airport.

Exploring the relationship between ‘Identity’ of the Airport, the city and nation, Pascall+Watson invites you to examine the various forms of identity within an airport’s architecture and how these are translated into the design ideas and approaches behind the architectural process.

Join our aviation specialists to explore:

the nature of identity – how does the client and user perceive identity?

collecting inspiration – drawing references from the local community, heritage and contemporary design and the importance of creating people-centred architecture.

the challenge of design – how do we translate identity into the architectural design? How do we adapt our architectural approach and integrate the design process to realise the concept.
