Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport has opened a surreal indoor/outdoor park right in the terminal. Real plants mix with man-made trees and logs. Bean bags and lounge chairs fill a carpet lawn. Piped-in birds sing and projected butterflies flutter about. Last winter I stumbled upon it during a layover. This tranquil, magical oasis was the perfect spot for a nap.
The Turkish Airlines CIP Lounge has recently been opened at the Ataturk Airport International Departures in Istanbul – a feast for the eyes. Featuring intricate shells built inside the airport hall, the modern airport lounge was designed by Autoban.
