Redesigning a terminal at one of the busiest U.S. airports, all while millions of passengers come and go, is no easy feat. But that’s what architecture firm HOK managed to do at New York City’s LaGuardia Terminal B, which fully reopened this year. The revamped space has a more traveler-friendly vibe all around, an eye-catching LED water fountain, and sky bridges between “islands.” “The metaphor is that New York is a city of islands and bridges,” says HOK president Carl Galioto of the new terminal, which recently won a UNESCO architecture and design award, making it the gold standard for airport design moving forward.
