A project is a topic thrust as part of wider aviation sector center of excellence at SUTD. The thrust focuses on the future of aviation terminal design towards the middle of this decade, specifically in the growing South East Asia region. It aims to research the 5 key scales of airport design: global, city, terminal, building, and user-experience in a progressive and connected way. Initially finding insight relating to future aviation terminals; looking at world economic and demographic trends, leading to aviation demand predictions, in parallel exploring technological disruptors to existing airport and airport-city-interfaces such as infrastructure and transportation innovation; translating this into effects on the terminal to allow the presentation of new proposals for novel adaptive airport and terminal building forms relevant to the South East Asian environment.
