Mexico City International Airport, New Terminal
The competition for a new terminal is a statement of Mexico’s confidence in a bright future, a voicing of its place as a leading economic power in the 21st century
Our competition design entry for the new terminal for Mexico City International Airport offers passengers an exciting, immersive and distinctive experience from the second they enter the building.
Calming natural light, gardens filled with lush vegetation, minimal level changes and dramatic views of the mountains create a refreshingly different setting for travellers, facilitating wayfinding and encouraging movement.
Our design aims to alleviate congestion at the 60 year old airport, combining optimal functionality with operational flexibility. Using the building’s central spine as a double-level retail environment, the innovative scheme simultaneously keeps sightlines clear and exposes passengers to the maximum number of retail frontages.
Sustainability is an integral aspect of the scheme, targeting low carbon emissions and adopting principles of passive design such as high-efficiency building shells, displacement ventilation, water saving techniques and the use of alternative energies.
