"The book has taken up various issue areas in airport designing which were hitherto not at all in perspective. The 21st century airport designing has to take into account not only architectural and aesthetic aspects but also a whole range of ecological, security, transport linkages and future needs of expansion. These areas of concern have surgically been analysed in the book. Overall, the book sets an out of the box approach to airport architecture in India."

These modern terminals are our windows to the world. Both in terms of scale and aesthetic design, Indian airports show that we are equal to the best. “New Skies”, the Coffee Table Book covers all the spectrum of air travel.

"The book in your hand “New Skies- India’s Airport Revolution” is an outcome of sincere efforts, well thought out research and the hard work and meticulous dedication put in by the author, publisher and all the associated people. The book has meticulously documented airports that are highly appealing places, gateways to the big world. India is poised for tremendous growth in the 21st century; the boom in international and domestic air travel in India over the recent years has resulted in a vast number of new airport buildings – a real challenge for architects. This carefully documented and handsomely reproduced volume presents some of the finest examples in design innovation for Airport buildings, and gives valuable information in concepts like “Movement, Dynamics and Lightness” creating airports that are expressive and have a stunning attitude.
This book provides a comprehensive and holistic view in planning and designing new generation airports for the posterity. Great Book. A must for every architect & designer. "
