Design Concept

The main concept of airport architectural expression is based on the combination of country’s past traditions and today’s technological abilities.The shape of terminal was chosen sustaining on the traditional form of drum. As there are many different types  of drums, two shapes were selected and integrated into the building design.The building visually has two layers linked together supporting each other. These two shells demonstrate two different  forms of two traditional drums: one bending inward and the other bending outward.The shape of the first drum was used for the internal building structure and the  shape structural strings of the second drum was applied to external building skin structure of the airport terminal.
