FIRST SUSTAINABLE AIRPORT ON THE PLANET: MEXICO CITY.

Viva Mexico!
The first sustainable airport in the world has started construction in Mexico City and according the renderings this place is beautiful, grand and airy, and futuristic. It will harness the energy from the sun, collect rain water, is super light weight, uses outside air for its climate control, with little or no additional cooling or heating. I’m jumping out of my skin here, people — the project is a collaboration by Lord Foster and Fernando Romero, between Foster + Partners, FR-EE (Fernando Romero Enterprise). I am in love. Check out the video:

 

“Designed to be the world’s most sustainable airport, the compact single terminal uses less materials and energy than a cluster of buildings. The design ensures short walking distances and few level changes, it is easy to navigate, and passengers will not have to use internal trains or underground tunnels – it is a celebration of space and light.”
