Costa Rica’s Airport Of The Future Is Now A Reality

P13-0330_8519

Costa Rica’s airport of the future is already a reality, if only in the minds of talented students of architecture, like that of Luis Alonso Pérez, who let his imagination run wild for his thesis project.

After two years of work and hundreds of hours of design Pérez was able to present his final work at the school of architecture at the Universidad de Costa Rica (UCR).

The design is for the  AIC. Cascajal International Airport terminal to be located in Orotina, which one day may replace the current, Juan Santamaria airport.

Pérez, in addition to being congratulated by his teachers and classmates, was also awarded the Bienal de Arquitectura (Architecture Biennale) 2012.

The student said, from the beginning he had envisioned creating a project that would provide the country with a modern airport. His objective was to create a work that went beyond use in the classroom, creating a workable plan, divided into three stages of construction. The design fuses functionality with the natural beauty of the country.

His efforts are being rewarded, as his thesis has been nominated to participate in worldwide competition, the first stop in Buenos Aires, Argentina and soon his work to be exhibited in Spain in another contest and at the Award ceremony for the Archiprix International 2013 in the Central House of Artists in Moscow on May 24th 2013
