INCHEON INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT TERMINAL 2 EXTENSION
Incheon, Republic of Korea
Incheon International Airport is located in the west of Incheon city center, on an artificial land between two islands that were originally separated by a shallow sea. The combined area have become home to one of the largest and busiest airports in the world. The proposal aims to enhance the remaining part of the main terminal and concourses through sustainable principles for the future of the airport and the harmony of the existing and new facilities. The proposed extension maximizes the border towards the airside to accommodate most gates within the limited footprint while satisfying the optimal daylight and thermal environment as an eco-smart airport. The proposed design allow the main terminal check-in area and the transitional area between current and future extension of the terminal to operate efficiently while maintaining the aesthetic of the existing building.
