Re: We need a new airport!!!

acoustics didn't' even occur to me....an airport must be a challenging space to design.

I signed up to charge lime but I doubt I actually ever do it.

I did notice that we have glass jet bridges. That's a nice touch.
I don't get this honestly. I feel these should be where we save money not going for the upgrades.

Re: We need a new airport!!!

In the designs there was an outside roof too....it's at the end of the presentation based on a twitter question (from me) Jolie asked and they said they are still planning for an interior fountain....I'll go ahead and assume it won't be a 2 story crazy fountain that we saw in the original concept th...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

agreed...we should in no way compare ourselves or strive to be Indy. We lapped them about 5 years ago from my experience there.

Re: We need a new airport!!!

I personally dislike that design except the height.

I can't think of one thing we chase Indy on.

Re: We need a new airport!!!

can someone point to a new terminal (similar sized city would be helpful) built since KCI that you say meets your standards? Union Station isn't walking through that door. Probably the single best example that I have personally used is Indy. Expected something similar here. New Orleans has yet to o...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

I still think the fountain should be re-thought...I mean, we are not talking about a fountain the size of JC Nichols, JFC. A cool interior fountain with LED projections would have been a hit for people new to the city taking pictures and whatnot. I mean, Kansas City is known as the city of fountain...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

I expect more too...I am just tempering my expectations at the "concept design complete" stage of the project.

Conceptual design is by definition "the broad outlines of function and form of something are articulated" (as per wikipedia)

things I was pleased to hear about yesterday: * Business lounge that could be shared among multiple airlines/credit cards programs.... * Front drive mostly covered (was concerned that went away) * Good amount of space for security * International gates to the immediate left could also be used for do...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

I think you underestimate how much complaining there is about bathrooms. They highlighted the things they heard most about (close walk, bathrooms).

Re: We need a new airport!!!

Question for architecture/engineer types...does a lot of clear materials in the roof make for more or less energy efficiency? Obv natural light helps with lighting costs but how expensive of "glass" do you need to make sure you aren't wasting a ton of energy to heat/cool?

Re: We need a new airport!!!

Agreed, a roof can make an airport very cool. I think we need to voice that to the airport committee.

Re: We need a new airport!!!

I think functionality will be great. Concourse widths seem to line up with what I consider a quality airport like PDX. Amenities look to be enough. I do want more sexy than these pictures are showing... Mostly I want more of the roof to let in light. Whether it's the beginning design or not I don't ...

Community meetings next month. Show up or somehow voice concerns to the airport committee so they can address.

Lime must be very close to launching as I completed my online training to become a 'Juicer' and will be notified when I can come pick up my chargers. It was a nice KC specific page.
Came here to post the same.
