Spaceport America by Foster and Partners

Project: Spaceport America
Designed by Foster + Partners
Co-architects: SMPC Architects

The Foster + Partners and URS team has won an international competition to build the first private spaceport in the world – The New Mexico Spaceport Authority Building. The sinuous shape of the building in the landscape and its interior spaces seek to capture the drama and mystery of space flight itself, articulating the thrill of space travel for the first space tourists. More detailed information is available at Foster and Partners website.
