Description/Abstract

"Architecture can critically embrace systems of surveillance, security, and sorting to construct a new collective model for an increasingly kinetic population.

As Airports gain more autonomy from their served cities, they also gain more power, catalyzing growth by expanding services, connections, and employing thousands of people. Through a political re-alignmet, untied from a contextual servant-served relationship, the airport typology will begin to take on qualities of a new type of society, constantly in flux. This new frame work for living will in turn test new ideas about security and surveillance as it applies to global mobilities."
