Issue 42 | April 2019
A public vote was recently opened for the winning design of the brand new $8.5bn Chicago O’Hare Airport terminal, primed to open in 2026. The public were invited to choose between five 3D designs submitted by some of the world’s most distinguished architectural firms. We look at the plans for the terminal and ask how much the public should weigh in when it comes to matters of airport design and construction.
We also tackle the drone panic as of late, after multiple airports had to suspend their operations due to drone sightings near the airfield. With drones increasingly commonplace in our skies, we ask: how can airport operations be protected from further disruption and danger?
We also debate whether flying with emotional support animals should be regulated, but ultimately accepted as par for the course, and describe the latest technology to aid blind people as they navigate through the chaotic environment of an airport in a special audio feature.
