MASterworks Conversations: LaGuardia Terminal B Arrivals & Departures Hall

2021 Winner for Best New Infrastructure

This fall, as a part of Archtober and NYCxDESIGN, MAS is celebrating design excellence in New York City with our 2021 MASterworks Awards! We have curated a selection of in person explorations and online in-conversations with this year’s honored projects.

On Friday, November 19, 1:00-2:00 PM, MAS President Elizabeth Goldstein will moderate a virtual panel discussion with team members from the LaGuardia Terminal B Arrivals & Departures Hall, 2021 MASterworks winner for Best New Infrastructure. Hear from those responsible for redeveloping Terminal B in to a gateway New Yorkers can be proud of and how this transformative project can help to inform future airport development. Participants include Stewart Steeves (COO Vantage Airport Group and former CEO LaGuardia Gateway Partners), Derek Thielmann (Project Director, LaGuardia Gateway Partners), Paul Auguste (Director of Aviation and Transportation, HOK) and Nicholas Baume (Artistic & Executive Director, Public Art Fund).
