|Architectural firm DBALP presented a draft of a new terminal for Thailand’s main airport, Bangkok Suvarnabhumi. The building has an area of 348 thousand square meters. will be built of wood and glass. The authors, who drew inspiration from the nature of Thailand, decided that the massive reinforced concrete structures holding the roof would certainly have to be hidden behind wooden panels.
As conceived by the architects, passengers arriving at the terminal first pass the shopping area, moving towards the check-in and passport control desks, where the food courts and waiting rooms are located.
In the center, behind the commercial part, on the square in 16 thousand sq. M. grow rainforest with waterfalls, according to DesignBoom. The project is a wooden terminal DBALP implements in collaboration with the Japanese company Nikken Sekkei, as well as with the support of six architectural offices.
It is noteworthy that the users of the Network, who evaluated the project, first took it for being copied from the Japanese Wooden Bridge Museum in the town of Yusuhara. However, DBALP was quick to assure that the building is absolutely original, and concrete-wooden structures, like open umbrellas, should be associated with the crowns of tropical trees.
The plan for the new international terminal Suvarnabhumi was approved by the board of directors of Airports of Thailand, which unites six Thai hubs. Date of commencement of construction has not yet been called.
