Springfield Branson National Airport

The diversity and richness of Southwest Missouri is reflected throughout the design of this new airport terminal. The architectural design reflects its location in the Ozark Mountains with an organization based on references to the area’s geological limestone strata, forested areas, and recreational lakes and rivers.

These natural references serve as metaphors to inform the interior design of public spaces into geological, landscape, and water zones. Each building volume is a loft space that can be individually expanded. Common use ticketing, fixed loading bridges, and a single-level passenger experience make this building extremely easy to use and adaptable to future change.
