Japan’s Narita Airport Is As Minimalistic As It Gets

In 2015, Japanese architecture studio Nikken Sekkei were asked to design a new, future-proof terminal for low-cost airline travellers at Tokyo’s Narita Airport, for half the price of what it would usually cost – not easily done.

Nikken Sekkei opted to leave out got the standard moving walkways and illuminated signs, to cut costs, and chose to replace them with more minimal, aesthetically-pleasing visuals. The running tracks also fit in nicely with the upcoming 2020 Japanese Olympics.
