Vatican City Airport

Lukas Husser & Stefania Koller

Vatican City Airport, a heterotopian procession connecting earth and heaven.  The Vatican with the St. Peter’s Basilica could be thought as the most amazing airport of world. 

Astonishingly the sequential spaces of the basilica could contain an airport perfectly: The colonnade links the airport with the city and houses the check-in counters. The facade with the narthex are the security check, before you enter the sacred and safe zone inside. The lateral chapels serve as shops, each one with it’s own “holy” brand. In the central crossing stands a black monolith that tells your destination and destiny. You board your plane in one of the aisles and take of from the baroque runway axis
