Abstract

Air travel's birth in the past century has ushered by what others call an "end to geography" but has also presented a building that is deeply rooted in the 20th century – the airport. The airport has since evolved as a de facto face of a city or country from simply being an enabler and a processor of world trade and mobility. Its transition therefore as a machina for economic growth and as a symbol of culture, power and history therefore presents interesting insights as how Terminals 1 and 2 of the Ninoy Aquino International Airport could be considered as such showcase of Filipino culture or simply serves its function as a requisite to fulfill the demands of human mobility.
