Queen Alia International AirportAmman, Jordan, 2013
Norman Foster

queen_alia_international_airport_by_foster_and_partners_02

Queen alia international airport in amman designed by foster + partners. The airport has a flexible modular solution that allows for future expansion at a rate of 6% per annum for the next twenty-five years, increasing capacity from 3.5 million to 12 million passengers annually by 2030.

In response to amman’s climate, where summer temperatures vary markedly between day and night time, the building is constructed largely from concrete, the high thermal mass of the material providing passive environmental control. The tessellated roof canopy comprises a series of shallow concrete domes, which extend to shade the facades – each dome provided a modular unit for construction. The domes branch out from the supporting columns like the leaves of a desert palm and daylight floods the concourse through split beams at the column junctions. Echoing the veins of a leaf, a geometric pattern based on traditional islamic forms is applied to each exposed soffit. The complex geometry of the roof shells and fabrication strategy was developed in conjunction with foster + partners in-house geometry specialists. via designboom.com
