Port Columbus International Airport: Essence Master Plan

Columbus, Ohio

Port Columbus International Airport is currently undergoing a modernization of their Terminal and enlisted MSA Architects to add a cohesive vision throughout the airport and site. After many creative workshops and presentations with the client, MSA manifested the vision as the “Essence of Columbus” and developed a master plan with a menu of options for consideration. The master plan, focusing on three main areas: ticket lobby, curb front and roadway approach; involves layering elements of “The Spirit of Columbus” to enhance not only the architecture, but also the experience of travelers moving through the site and spaces. Implementation of these essence elements will establish Port Columbus as a unique and memorable airport while solidifying the message that the spirit of Columbus offers something for everyone.
