"I love the experience of flight and taking it to that extra dimension into space, to be high enough in the atmosphere -- or above it -- to momentarily see the horizon and the biggest possible perspective -- these are thrills still to come!"

"We are absolutely thrilled to be part of the dynamic team chosen to design the world’s first space terminal. This technically complex building will not only provide a dramatic experience for the astronauts and visitors, but will set an ecologically sound model for future Spaceport facilities."

"I love flying, I love aircraft and you could say I've had a love affair with flight since I was a child. I travel a huge amount. I use airports and as a pilot I've flown in and out of airports thousands of times so really I have a fairly broad perspective."

"As a designer I know that everything we've done -- everything I've done -- is to try to transform that experience to bring it back to what it was in the golden age of flight. To make it something that is a celebration, to make it a friendly, uplifting experience and in that sense to go back in time."
