Spaceport America

Spaceport America, designed by Foster + Partners and completed last year is the world's first commercial spaceport. Being based in New Mexico, I'm not surprised that it appears to apy more homage to crashed UFO's and Area 51 in design than the sprawling hyper-commercial airports we're used to. I would have thought that at this stage in human history we could get over national pride and call it 'Spaceport Earth' but alas. For some, the space race never ended. These incredible images are actually credible to this Domus article. Words are there too. Sorry I don't have time to write more. Also, check out this interview I did for DNA India on New Mumbai.
