Edmonton City Center Airport design proposals

I'm so excited to see the proposals for the Edmonton City Center Airport site. All the proposals have common themes of history, green factor, lifestyle and designs worthy of an major international center. Submissions range from as far as Stockholm to Kansas and Rotterdam to Vancouver.

I personally love the proposal by Perkins + Wil (conceptual drawing to the left) out of Vancouver. The gardens in an urban center remind me of Japan. I'm also very interested in the extension of the river valley to the city. All proposals include a major water feature/green space which is beautiful. I'm especially happy we have a four plex near here which will surely benefit from the changes to come!
