The Good, The Bad And The LaGuardia: Modern Airport Design
New York City’s LaGuardia Airport to be torn down and rebuilt. We’ll consider what makes a great airport now, and how the US stacks up to the global competition. American airports are hardly the world’s finest any more. Last year, Joe Biden said walking into New York’s battered old LaGuardia airport was like walking into a Third World country.

Architecture is everywhere in the everyday life. Look around. What do you see? What do you pass by on your way to work? Buildings are everywhere. Modern or old, every building has its own story, its own life, past and the future. When we build a new house instead of the old one we don’t think about the history that was left behind and the meaning it may have for you as a citizen of the city/country. Modern architecture changes the way we work, live and spend our leisure time. Parks, places of interest, offices and homes reveal our philosophy and shape the way we perceive the world.
The majority of people spend most of the time in buildings. Some of them were structured for the purpose of studying, entertaining, having rest or just living. However, it is hard to say that an average house where we live was built with the end user in mind. As a rule, architects are heavily dependent on such aspects as space, time, money and other limitations. When you decide to build your own house, the aforementioned factors are no less important. Most of us start working on such projects heavily relying on the budget.
