COX’S BAZAR INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT TERMINAL BUILDING

Cox’s Bazar is the longest sea beach in the world. The concept of the airport terminal building is generated from or inspired by wave. The basic definition of is that, it transmits or transfers energy and information. An airport terminal is such a space where passenger transfers between ground transportation and aircraft.

The form is also inspired from wave. The directional change of water wave with respect to sunlight creates a soothing pattern inside the wave. This inspires the internal space of the terminal building to have such ambience and, it is brought by creating shade- shadow pattern inside the terminal due to space truss system with respect to sunlight.

LOW OF SPACE:

The internal space flow is made in such a way that  the ambience of wave can be felt from all the floors and spaces by the combination of solids and voids. This also creates visual connection of one space to another.

The visual connectivity helps the passenger to feel the rush of the airport but also soothens his mind by shade shadow pattern and its change with the change in daytime.

Structural system comprises tree column connected to space truss system joined with ball joint

Metal frame holds 3 aluminium plates located on South, East and West. Only the North has glass plate to permit northern light.
