Greeters Lobby Terminal E-F Modifications at MIA

Miami, FL

A section of the original Miami International Airport building constructed in 1947, Terminals E-F were completely renovated. Foremost were the relocation of the entire airport phone and data connections from this floor to another site; and replacement of the concrete barriers that divided international arrivals from their crowds of greeters. The firm created a full-height glass wall that safely separates travelers from greeters while making visible the drama of arrival.  Selective transparency and open space were applied to reinforce the wayfinding and passenger processing.

Zyscovich also introduced a palette of rich and colorful materials, including terrazzo flooring, mosaic tile murals, and colored glass to reference the subtropical location. The rectilinear regimen of the original floor plan was turned into a sea of curvilinear design motifs and elements.
