The airport terminal building, to be a useful tool over many years, must have a high degree of flexibility. In planning terminal structures, we must recognize that economy and expansibility are co-requirements and must be mutually involved. Four dimensions of terminal planning and construction should be considered. In addition to the usual dimensions of length, height, and width, time is an equally important component. The extensive use of dimensional planning can make a facility longlived.
