Narita International Airport Terminal 3 by Nikken Sekkei

It’s undeniable that our airports are currently overpopulated with ads plastered on every wall, signs pointing in every direction, screens telling us where to go, and every imaginable kiosk and store trying to sell us something. Now, a Japanese architecture firm, Nikken Sekki, has redesigned one of the airport terminal’s in Tokyo’s Narita Airport, giving it a minimalist design.

The newly designed Terimnal 3 strips away the advertisements and typical signs, and it uses a blue track to show travelers where they’re supposed to be walking, using bold black and white pictures to direct traffic. There are no expensive electronic signs to be found, and there is no finished ceiling (because when you really think about it, who cares about the ceiling, anyway). Without all of the hoopla, the terminal was created for about half of the normal cost, saving the Narita Airport a pretty chunk of change.
