San Fran-based architectural firm Gensler has come up with the up-to-date $80 billion design of London Britannia Airport. It would be a floating airport on the surface of London’s River Thames Estuary, added to the center of the river with buildings and runways tethered to the seabed. The project would enable 24-hour departures — noise reduction restrictions aren’t necessary over water. Power is presupposed to be generated by marine turbines situated around the floating airport. The concourse would be located in the center of the Estuary, and four 5-kilometers long tethered runways would float around it. Access to the airport would be provided via a new high-speed underground railway that takes travelers either to London or off to the rest of Europe. The floating project foresees building of three parking terminals nearby on land. Furthermore the firm’s proposal also includes a reconstruction of Heathrow, that would be updated to an eco-village.
