A recent trip to Thailand included a stop at Singapore’s airport. I was impressed, the airport was very clean, full of shops and had beautiful gardens. After a long flight it was so nice to get out to stretch my legs and I was pleased with what I saw. Since opening in 1981, Singapore Changi Airport has grown and has won countless awards for customer service. I mention this to emphasize how important first impressions are, how our environments can make a huge difference in how we feel and how traveling can inspire new ideas. If you have any interest in learning more about Changi take a look: (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Singapore_Airport) . Stay tuned for more design news from my trip to Thailand.
