XINQIAO INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT

Hefei, China

Invited International Competition 2006 - 4th Prize

Hefei New Airport is programmed to be a medium size hub airport, an international airport for regular flights, a hub airport of Anhui Province and a reserve airport for Shanghai and Nanjing. Within the long range planning the airport terminal is to be able to park 122 number of large and medium size airbuses.

We suggested a radial terminal concept. The terminal area is a radiant structure and will be developed in a radial way, phase by phase, according to the growth of the traffic. In this way the walking distances to and from the airplanes could be solved with the shortest way to and from the main body of the terminal.
