The Airport With A Running Track


We're not sure any of us really enjoy being in airports. For something that is usually the start of a supposedly enjoyable time, they have an uncanny ability to stress everyone out. Endless security checks, delays, overpriced food and drink - and that's before you even get on the plane and have six hours to kill, whilst sitting next to a screaming toddler you'd also quite like to kill.

But the newly-opened third terminal at Japan's Narita International Airport has come up with a unique way to expend all that nervous energy and built-up stress: it features its own running track, in stylish blue. Whilst giving the perfect opportunity for some sprint challenges, it's also a neat way of guiding passengers to where they need to go.

As if that wasn't enough, there's also furniture by Japanese homeware gurus Muji and creative direction by PARTY, with design overseen by Nikken Sekkei.

Terminal 3 has been in development for three years and should help Narita International reach its intended conclusion: when it opened in 1978 it was forced by protests to be a fraction of its originally-designed size. You could say this is the final leg of the relay race of construction, if you were searching for a terrible metaphor. So we won't.

Take a look at a video and images below.
