The APA Case Study titled “Award-Winning Airport Design Takes Wing” focuses on the Jackson Hole Airport located within Grand Teton National Park. The airport complements the rugged beauty of its surroundings and stands just 18 feet tall at the base of the spectacular Teton Range.

The three-phase expansion and renovation, which began in 2009, nearly doubled the size of the aviation hub—the only one in a national park—to approximately 116,000 square feet. The design team was determined to stay true to western Wyoming traditions and mountain-town architecture—while simultaneously obliging the 18-foot height restriction imposed by the park.

Architect Brent Mather, a design director at Gensler, says the designers achieved that harmony through their choice of natural materials, exposed glulam trusses and purlins, and expansive panes of glass. The structure celebrates modern mountain architecture.
