Terminal One

It is easy to coin the spaces we occupy as dynamic. Spaces we engage with by going from one spot to another -- one room to another room and back again to the original room. From the kitchen, to the living room, back to the kitchen, and then the living room. Airports are quite literally the opposite; linear spaces. When you enter an airport, the notion of turning back is utterly foreign. You walk through security, perhaps purchase something on the way to your gate, board your plane, and land somewhere else where you rapidly head toward baggage claim or ground transportation to complete the last few miles of your journey. This linear relationship is of course a structural consideration, and thus by design you expect there to be the trash can, bathroom, sitting area, and Hudson News in perfect cadence. For a few; however, the airport can become a dynamic space — by necessity, or choice.

This project chronicles a subset of US Airports.
