SFO, Past & Future, Part One

Q & A with Art Gensler

In 1981 Gensler redesigned San Francisco International Airport’s Terminal 2 (SFO T2) based on the idea that airports should put the needs of passengers above those of the airplanes.

30 years later, we are applying that same concept to our latest renovation of SFO T2. Slated for completion in April 2011, the newly renovated terminal will elevate passengers’ experience of skylife, while highlighting the distinct culture of the Bay Area.

Art Gensler, Gensler’s founder, recently discussed the firm’s historic affiliation with SFO. This is part one of that discussion. We will publish additional segments in the coming weeks as we anticipate the re-opening of T2.
