Tianjin Seashore Airport Terminal Building by ATKINS

Project description by ATKINS:
Conceptually, the design of Tianjin Seashore Airport‘s new passenger terminal building borrows from the physical form a bird as the inspiration for the design. A symmetrical plan faces the axial airport boulevard, adopting a portico that soars the arrivals and departure concourse in the form of a bird’s outstrecthed neck and break. The bird metaphor is continued in the expression of the concourse with its wing-like steel and concrete roof structure. There are echoes of Eero Saarinan’s TWA Terminal at New York’s John F Kennedy Airport (1960) in the curved concrete form that looks not unlike a wild goose about to take off or land on water. The airport terminal is set within a long term flexible masterplan that emphasises balance and symentry.
