Jury Comment: Powerful, simple forms, an expressive structural/architectural solution.
Project Description: The building’s “big idea” design element (and construction investment) is the three-level, 660-foot-long, glass Gateway Foyer that links all levels and supports every mode of vertical and horizontal passenger movement though the terminal. As an “origins and destinations” terminal rather than a hub, which typically keeps its passengers inside the concourse, a strong curbside architectural presence was desired.
