Foster + Partners architects are busy working on an airport design, that’s technologically ahead and is a green architectural marvel of sorts. With each terminal designed to sport three symmetrical wing-like structures, each of these will have a façade measuring 1.2 kilometers. The roof is of each terminal will pack solar panels and is looking for an LEED Gold certification.
