DESCRIPTION
 
Ricardo Bofill - T1 aeropuerto BarcelonaThe mission of the new terminal is to serve as a communications gateway linking barcelona with the rest of europe and the world, to promote passenger mobility and to expand connections to the airport by different forms of transport, high-speed train, local trains, and the subway. Its total surface area is 300.000 m2,  accommodating an increase of 25 million passengers/year, which doubles the existing terminals. The landmark building comprises two main spaces under the same roof: one is 500 metres wide, for check-in, security and baggage collection, and the other is 700 metres long, accommodating pre-boarding and boarding areas. The design of the building combines an international, multicultural character with the luminosity and warmth of mediterranean architecture. Its transparency allows natural light to flood into all public spaces and provides panoramic views of the runways, the sea and the natural landscape. By combining maximum func tionality, local technology, respect for the environment and unique architecture, the new airport terminal will become an intercontinental hub, a reference and original prototype for forthcoming hubs in the rest of the world.
