PROJECT / CHHATRAPATI SHIVAJI INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT, MUMBAI, INDIA

Skylights provide an added effect to the impressive columns that are a halmark of the project. The feather shaped indented surfaces and gracefully sweeping concrete that mark out the columns were designed to bring to mind a strutting peacock, the national bird of India and the official symbol of the airport.

Der Innenbereich der Abflughalle ist warm und luftig und große Oberlichter wurden über 28 Säulen im Innenraum installiert, um zu gewährleisten, dass das Terminal-Gebäude von natürlichem Licht durchflutet wird. 244 kleinere Oberlichter wurden ebenfalls befestigt, um Licht zwischen den Säulen zu verteilen. Insgesamt umfassen sie rund 30.000 Quadratmeter Oberlichtglas, dank dem

India’s first female aviator was Rabia Futehally, becoming, five decades ago, the first woman in the country to gain a private pilot’s licence, courtesy of that intrepid organisation, the Bombay Flying Club. She was a true feminist spurred on to learn to fly after seeing her brothers in action, piloting their Piper PA-18s at Juhu. Today there are more female pilots in India than in any other country in the world, a fine testament to a nation that is not only in love with aviation, but is also intent on progress, no matter what the obstacles.

Airport offers a similar statement. Not only is it a temple dedicated to flight, it is also a structure where modern materials, innovative design and technology have been used to powerful architectural effect. And yet despite the modern and sustainable nature of the design, the building does not lose touch with the city it serves, acting as much as a showpiece of the history and traditions of India as a technological achievement. www.som.com www.brandston.com

è caldo e arioso, grazie a dei grandi lucernari che sono stati installati e ad oltre 28 colonne che caratterizzano gli interni garantendo all’edificio del terminal di essere immerso nella luce naturale. I 244 lucernari minori sono stati montati per distribuire la luce tra le colonne e tutti insieme comprendono intorno ai 30.000 m² di vetro, aiutando l’edificio ad ottenere l’autonomia di luce per la maggior parte dell’anno. Sono stati inoltre creati dei lampadari personalizzati e la loro forma è ispirata al fiore di loto, mentre il lavoro per il tradizionale mosaico a specchio è stato sviluppato anche da artisti locali, al fine di ricordare ai passeggeri la vita movimentata al di là del frizzante atrio del terminal.
