London's Plans for a Floating Airport

Design News 09.10.12

The aviation debate waging in London is whether to expand Heathrow or build a new airport. Gensler offers this rendering of a proposed structure in the middle of the Thames estuary, with four runways anchored to the riverbed and terminals floating in between. The project would cost an estimated £50 billion. And what would happen to Heathrow? Converted into an eco-city for 300,000 residents.

In other news, a sneak peak at Apple's Campus II, and Google Glass walks the runway. See the headlines after the jump.
