Future and Architecture… Any ideas? Well it looks like the future is here, for Foster + Partners and URS corporation, who designed the first spaceport in the world, in New Mexico. And in case you were wondering, yes construction has already begun!
The sinuous shape of the building in the landscape and its interior spaces seek to capture the drama and mystery of space flight itself, articulating the thrill of space travel for the first space tourists. Making a minimal impact on the environment, the scheme will be the first facility of its kind and a model for the future.
The spaceport will host commercial operations by private space travel companies, like Virgin Galactic.
