Description - Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, International Terminal, San Francisco International Airport by Anne-Catrin Schultz
The new building of San Francisco International Airport offers a recognizable image to arriving and leaving passengers. It is organized over five levels, making it America's first mid-rise terminal. According to Craig Hartman, design architect with SOM, the terminal is founded upon the qualities of light and lightness. The building's position above several lanes of traffic required a 380-foot long span between the central columns - essentially the building is a bridge.
