Foster + Partners: Spaceport America

Lying low within the desert landscape of New Mexico, Spaceport America is the first commercial space terminal in the world. Created by world-renowned firm Foster + Partners, the design was achieved using local materials, with a light carbon footprint and aims of complete sustainability. The dug-in design benefits from natural thermal mass effect, buffering the building from the extreme climates of New Mexico. This truly is a new day for travel.
