Scale Energy and Travel Architecture; recent work of Luis Vidal Architects

Luis Vidal will present a superfast zoom throughout our known scale (from the universe to a carbon atom), and then take us to a reflection about energy needs and world population. Vidal will present his airport terminal projects as case studies of his design philosophy, concluded by a peek at the future of space travel.
Luis Vidal, founder of Luis Vidal + Architects, has established a unique perspective on sustainable design that he has applied on projects including Madrid Airport Terminal 4 and London Heathrow Terminal 2.
Vidal studied architecture in Greenwich (UK) and is a member of RIBA (Royal Institute of British Architects). He specializes, amongst other building types, in airport design. Vidal was the Project Director for the new terminal for Madrid Barajas Airport -T4 – and Co-author of the new Warsaw International Airport. A year after founding Luis Vidal + Architects, his design for the new Zaragoza Airport was shortlisted as finalist of the Mies Van der Rohe 2009 Awards. Vidal is the lead architect for the new Terminal 2 at London Heathrow Airport, scheduled to open in 2014. LVA Has become the first Spanish practice involved in developing a spaceport, being Associate Architects to the engineering and architecture firm HDR for the design of Front Range Spaceport in Denver, Colorado. Mr Vidal is the co-designer for Abengoa’s HQ’s offices in Seville, Spain, the first building to receive LEED Platinum certification in Europe. He is also the author of the concept titled “Airport Hospitals”, which applies his responsible designs to improve the passenger experience inside a terminal building in order to reduce patient’s anxiety and promote faster recovery in hospitals.
