Sitting outside of Heathrow, I thought it was nice to have a plaza since I haven’t seen many at airports. Airports are some fascinating public space and design spaces. I had met an San Fran architect at TED, we talked about their architecture design and details that help “user experience”. Places like Changi Airport in Singapore I think are quite amazing in making people comfortable in long transit times, and pay attention to little things like larger bathroom stalls (because people have luggage!)
As part of the Sketchbook Project, I chose “Travel with Me” as a theme, and aimed to fill it this trip. Funnily it has ended up all about AIRPORTS. My thoughts and drawings from all the airports on this trip – Brisbane, Edinburgh, Heathrow, Singapore, JFK. It is all scribbles about airport design, time differences, people sitting around, emotional baggage and real baggage.
