案例详情:

 ollowing up on our previous coverage of the project, here are some images of the completed
'spaceport america' by internationally-recognized firm foster + partners in new mexico, USA.
the first commercial space terminal in the world, the new 11,148 m2 facility will offer 
opportunities for tourists to travel into space. a dedication ceremony for the 
'virgin galactic gateway to space' was recently held to celebrate the milestone event. 

lying low within the desert-like landscape of new mexico, the organic form of the terminal
and hangar rises out of the ground to form an undulating and continuous roof form.
the main entrance is created by a deep channel that cuts into the center of the design.
retaining walls on either side of the approach lines an exhibition space that highlights
the history of space exploration. 

using local materials and regional construction techniques, the project was a practice
in sustainability, seeking to make a minimal impact on the environment. the dug-in design 
benefits from natural thermal mass effect, buffering the building from the extreme climates of
new mexico. a series of skylights enable the interior to be naturally illuminated while 
the westerly wind facilitates ventilation.
