San Jose Airport by Gensler & Steinberg Architects


I found this project reviews on but no posting date – the San Jose airport. The airport called SJC or Norman Y. Mineta Airport and it’s an America’s 41st largest airport in passenger count. Scheduled for completion next year, the project costs $1.3 billion. The building is linear and appear resolved and fluid from the outside.


It also suggested a design approach: a long, rounded extrusion, with an elegant curvilinear exterior symbolizing a communications cable whose outer layers have been irregularly sliced and partly peeled away. Inside, the extrusion is even more consistent. The 90-foot-wide concourse is a dramatic hall of light formed by a convex east wall, a clerestory, a convex glass roof/ceiling, an outwardly slanting interior colonnade, and sweeping window walls with dramatic views of the airfield to the west.
