LaGuardia Central Terminal

KPF Architects  |  Senior Designer  |  2014

The new Central Terminal at LaGuardia is a 1.1 million square foot terminal that incorporates 35 gates, three piers, a concessions and retail promenade, as well as, integrated security screening facility.  It was essential for the building to be seen as the new gateway to New York City.  The design of the project relies on a massive undulating roof that peals up to allow natural light deep into the space.  Careful consideration was paid to the user experience, it was important that upon entering the airport that one easily understands way-finding through light, material, and form.
