Queens, New York
PRESENT Architecture is proud to have been selected as a finalist in the Master Plan Design Competition for New York’s LaGuardia Airport, sponsored by New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and The Port Authority of NY & NJ.
Our proposal focuses on integrating a unified terminal experience with innovative transit ideas in order to improve landside and airside operations. Our masterplan rethinks flight capacity by adding a fourth terminal with a parallel and independent runway, and radically increases connectivity between LGA and the metropolitan area by extending AirTrain, MTA Subway service, and East River ferry service for ‘one seat access.’ Our design takes the form of a seamless LGA composed of continuous concourses punctuated with light-filled terminals, for a visitor experience worthy of New York City.
