Ontario International Airport is a vital link in the Southern California aviation network. Designed for two phase implementation, phase one of the expansion involves the development of two new terminal facilities comprising 450,000 square feet and able to accommodate 9 million annual passengers. The design consists of a linear structure which effectively utilizes the narrow north/south dimension of the site parallel to the airfield. The first level of each node contains a vaulted ticketing lobby, airline offices, baggage claim and baggage make up facilities. The second level encompasses passenger hold-rooms, 27 aircraft boarding gates, concession areas and security check points. Alternating enplaning and deplaning functions are extended over the entire length of the terminal area resulting in added convenience for commuters and flexibility for airline operations.
Responsibilities included: site analysis, architectural design, construction documents, and specifications.
Yong Dong Area Airport: Sokcho, South Korea
The competition-winning design of the Yong Dong Area International Airport includes an assemblage of individual structures, a 215,000 square foot passenger terminal, cargo freight terminal, administrative building, fire rescue center, maintenance shop and air traffic control tower. This is a two level enplaning and deplaning terminal. The organization is linear being the most flexible for programmed gate expansion and most adaptable to aircraft change.
Responsibilities included: site analysis, architectural design, construction documents.
New Seoul Metropolitan International Airport: Seoul, South Korea
Located on a 5,800 hectares island, the New Seoul Metropolitan Airport Terminal comprises 874,930 square meters. For the majority of passengers, access to the airport is by high-speed fixed rail. The solution positions the major passenger transit terminals immediately adjacent to the airline boarding and alighting functions to create the most efficient plan and sectional organization. To clarify the circulation of boarding and alighting passengers, the train tracks are separated vertically. All boarding functions are on the same level as their related transit modes of train, bus, taxi and passenger vehicles, and are grade-separated from the alighting functions and their related transit modes. The large curved roof which crowns the multilevel portion of the building recognizes the location of the highest density of arrival and departure functions and is the dominant symbol of the airport terminal.
Responsibilities included: site analysis, architectural design.
