San Jose International Airport

Civitas and Fentress Architects were selected to design a new terminal, approach road and parking structures for the San Jose airport. The scheme draws on the agricultural patterns once common in the valley by using a range of native and decorative low-water using plantings to make a rhythmic but sustainable approach experience.
