Now Boarding: Airport of the Future

LOS ANGELES, Mar. 5, 2015 — (PRNewswire) —

LOS ANGELES, Mar. 5, 2015 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- MRG Makowsky Restaurant Group, a boutique Food & Beverage Company, teams up with  Fentress Architects, a world premiere architect firm, to discuss the Airport of the Future. With globalization and rapidly expanding need for new airports and airport cities, Airports of the Future will be the cornerstones of tomorrow's economy; shaping emerging regions in the same way that cities of the past were shaped by their access to seaports and railways. "Imagine an airport terminal that's more like a sleek hotel lobby, with clean open spaces, no lines at check-in, luxury retail, food at your finger click, and where travelers have services that are delivered to them. The Airport of the Future isn't just fantasy or science fiction." states Seth Makowsky of MRG. "It's happening now."

Architecture & Technological

"When you consider that most other building types- houses, churches, schools, courthouses, theaters – have been around, in some form or another, for thousands of years, the airport a distinct architectural category is still in its infancy. Even skyscrapers are older by over 40 years. The most important innovations in airport design are yet to come. "– Cutis Fentress, Fentress Architects.

"Over the last century, the airport has evolved from a grassy landing strip into an interconnected complex of structures and systems on unparalleled scale. Moving from touch-screen kiosk to security checkpoint, onto moving walkways and through food courts, boarding shuttle trains and escalators on the way to a gate area, jet way, and finally onto a flight, individual passengers begin to resemble data packets being routed, switched, and queued in a digital network." – From Now Boarding: Fentress Airports and the Architecture of Flight.

  1. Aircraft Technology: the first hundred years of airport design were driven by the needs of planes. Perhaps the next hundred years should be driven by the needs of passengers.
  2. Mobile Technology: Your phone is good for more than texting. In the future, it will connect you to everything; including your luggage.
  3. Express Baggage: It's hard to be excited about flying when you feel like a mule. Expedited and automated baggage systems will relieve the burden by transferring your luggage from home to your final destination, safely and effortlessly.
  4. Aircraft innovations:  What if airplane wings could fold back like a birds', so planes could nest closely together on the ground? Or take off vertically?
  5. Seamless Security: Let human evil be countered by human brilliance. Technology will dramatically streamline the long march through security.

Environmental

Airports are changing to adapt to the growing crowds, and a select few are prioritizing sustainability as part of the process. "Air travel is an important place to begin implementing alternative and sustainable energy solutions. Many of which are yet to be discovered. Airports could even be energy powerhouses, generating excess power to support the cities around them." according to Seth Makowsky, MRG Makowsky Restaurant Group.

Food & Beverage, Retail & Entertainment

In the past, a traveler had few options for fast food dining, let alone fine dining, gift shopping, entertainment or relaxation. Airports had become places to corral the masses. In the last 20 years, airports have experienced a resurgence in inspired design. Beautiful terminals with high-end retail and other amenities make a traveler's layover more pleasant and allow for airlines to keep ticket costs down.

Makowsky states, "When people arrive at the Airport of the Future they will be in awe of the wonder surrounding them. Imagine making reservations for 5-star dining, catching a show, or attending spectacular events under the roar of jetliners. Airport operators, owners, and developers all over the world are realizing that people will indeed spend time—and good money—at an airport if you give them something to be delighted about." The Airports in Europe have been leading the global pack in blissful consumer spending. According to Airports Council International in 2013, they reported revenues of about $7 billion on airport concessions and food/beverage sales alone, with $6 billion in the Asia-Pacific region and $1.7 billion in North America.
