Terminal 1A Airport, Vienna
An extraordinary apparition
Terminal 1A, a temporary structure, stands opposite the existing terminals on a parking deck: a minimalistic, large, light construction. It radiates representative quality through the materials used and the details incorporated. At night, a kind of shadow play unfolds on the façade as with a large lantern.
The structure of the façade commands attention. A geometrically clear fold has the effect of creating optically dynamic changes in perspective. Surfaces appear larger - and seem to invite the visitor with a welcoming gesture to enter through the double door.
Passengers are met by a peaceful environment in the main hall, and the tasteful furnishings never give them the impression of being channelled through a cheap, temporary construction.
