An airport is a gate for countries. It gives the first impression to the travelers who visit the country and offers the last experience before they fly to another country. It has very strong functionality as well as spatial limitations because of the strong directionality and regulations, but there are attempts to make this experience more dynamic—Airport as Attraction. In Singapore, Changi Airport, which will be opening this year, has so may attractions and enjoyable spaces such as Forest Valley, Slides, Sky Nets, Canopy Mazes, etc. It is designed to combine a marketplace and an urban park so that people to actually have fun in the airport. Not only Changi Airport, many airports are trying to have a better design with technology and human-centric approach. This approach is to not just focus on conventional functionality but to change the perspective in different ways.
