Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport – Air Traffic Control Tower

The Sheward Partnership completed a design task in response to a request for professional design services. The new Air Traffic Control Tower (ATCT) is an excellent opportunity to provide an iconic design symbol that is easily distinguishable and immediately recognizable as a BWI Marshall landmark. A strong contextual solution for this new ATCT references the architectural expression of surrounding structures and forms. Strong consistent contextual themes include the expression of glass and structural steel present throughout all Terminals at BWI Marshall as well as the strong sculptural vertical rhythm of the circulation towers of the daily parking garage.
