organic airport

a few days ago my friend over at perpetual-elaboration posted on the organic airport that was the winning design for a joint department of homeland security and the association of collegiate schools of architecture design competition.  the winning entry was put forward by two friends of mine, james diewald and michael frederick, and i must say after hearing about their design i thoroughly enjoyed finally seeing it.  their entry focuses on a how to approach the new security requirements within the broader issues of airport form and function.  i am quite impressed and their work is certainly commendable.  i would encourage everyone to head over to architecture week and read the article about the design written by the designers themselves.
