Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport Landside Modernization – Roadways, Canopies, and Terminal Façade

CHASM is currently serving as a Joint Venture Design partner responsible for modernizing the landside components of the busiest and most efficient airport in the world.

The primary design elements include two 864-foot-long, ETFE clad canopies that cover the north and south terminal roadways. The sweeping curve of the canopies serves as the primary catalyst and brand for a new Atlanta airport experience.

New facades draped with metal and fritted glass panels depict the surrounding forested terrain, while the expansive windows allow light to flood the ticket hall promoting a “green” passenger experience. Intuitive way-finding makes the transition beyond the ticket hall to the lush, park-like atrium accommodating to even the busiest of travelers. CHASM staff has been involved in all components of this very broad task order scope.

As a Joint Venture Principal, Nathaniel was responsible for managing CHASM’s entire design effort, assisting the JV team’s Project Manager with overall work plan coordination and has expanded to invoice approval, monthly report coordination and led in components of the design of key elements.
