Foster + Partners to build first private spaceport

“The Foster + Partners and URS team has won an international competition to build the first private spaceport in the world – The New Mexico Spaceport Authority Building. The sinuous shape of the building in the landscape and its interior spaces seek to capture the drama and mystery of space flight itself, articulating the thrill of space travel for the first space tourists.”

Some characteristic Foster buildings:
30 St Mary Axe, “The Gherkin”
London’s City Hall

51 Lime Street
Canary Wharf tube station

For some interesting reading check out Yale’s Avalon Project, an extensive online resource for documents in Law, History, and Diplomacy, where you’ll find the Treaty on Principles Governing the Activities of States in the Exploration and Use of Outer Space, Including the Moon and Other Celestial Bodies.
