A Week at the Airport: A Heathrow Diary
From the bestselling writer of The artwork of go back and forth comes a wittily exciting exploration of the unusual "non-place" that he believes is the creative middle of our civilization.
Given unparalleled entry to 1 of the world's busiest airports as a "writer-in-residence," Alain de Botton chanced on it to be a exhibit for lots of of the main crosscurrents of the trendy world--from our religion in know-how to our destruction of nature, from our worldwide interconnectedness to our romanticizing of the unique. He met tourists from in every single place and spoke with every body from luggage handlers to pilots to the airport chaplain. Weaving jointly those conversations and his personal observations--of every little thing from the poetry of room provider menus to the eerie silence in the midst of the runway at midnight--de Botton has produced a unprecedented meditation on a spot that almost all folks by no means decelerate sufficient to determine essentially. Lavishly illustrated in colour through popular photographer Richard Baker, every week on the Airport finds the airport in all its turbulence and soullessness and--yes--even beauty.

The first span of the west bound lanes was completely displaced off of the concrete pile cap/concrete pile foundation (Photograph PC_1). The east bound lane had been moved laterally several inches (Photograph PC_2).
Approximate annual tonnage is 250,000 tons. 1. 78” W FIRM Storm Surge: Zone A9 (El. 11) and V12 (El. 12) Actual Storm Surge: 13 feet (Preliminary Finding) Date of Survey: 06 October 2005 The structural damage observed at the Bayou Casotte Terminals appeared to be related to high winds and some water impact.
