GC AIRPORT market share in aus

intent Based on prior research, it has been identified that Gold Coast Airport is experiencing immense growth over the past decade and is projected to grow to over 16.6 million passengers per year by 2037, up from the current amount of 6 million (GCA Master Plan, 2017).

Globally, it is recognised that most airports

serve their primary function as a fulcrum for national and international travel. Gold Coast airport is located on an immensely unique site that offers both risks and opportunities. It has been identified that Gold Coast airport has the potential to become a destination hub and this project seeks to achieve that through a carefully considered master plan concept.

The Concept

The concept was derived from multiple factors

including the site context through analysis and experience along with Jan Gehl’s underlying masterplanning principles.

The Original Built Form

06 Beach Culture

Fluidity // noun

1 of a substance able to flow easily 1.1 Smoothly elegant or graceful 1.2 Not settled or stable

Firstly, Gold Coast is unique in its setting with a linear flow of settlement along the coast. With nearly all year round sunshine and a coastal lifestyle of surf and fun, a naturally calm yet constantly moving atmosphere presents itself.

The unbounded expansion of flow just as the settlement along the

This contributed to the eventual understanding that the concept would be based around fluidity.

It is within this understanding that the concept of fluidity will serve as the underlying motif for the design development.

Gold Coast occurred from the North and the South in a natural manner.

CURRENT FUNCTION

OPPORTUNITIES & RISKS Risks Based Various

risks around the GC airport site pose threats to the land and the community within the area. However, the two primary risks for concern is the current and projected noise impact that is predicted to increase and impact surrounding communities immensely as a large proportion of the area is residential. Secondly, the proximity to the ocean results in concern for the rising sea level and erosion creeping ever nearer to the bordering land just beyond the airport fringe.

Opportunities

“Coolangatta”

- the current location adjacent to the airport site, translates from the Aboriginal meaning to:

“PLACE OF GOOD VIEW”

As such, the proximity to the ocean and surrounding lakes offer immense views and other social opportunities that can be utilised. Furthermore, Coolangatta and the surrounding area can benefit from redevelopment as in previous years areas like Surfers Paradise and Broadbeach has had priority. This has helped enhance community liveability and could do the same for Coolangatta, elevating the standard and creating a more balanced relationship between the hubs on the Coast.

Develop a user centric design built around a comfortable human scale

2 To develop a destination hub for passengers and locals

3 THE CURRENT STATE Gold Coast Airport as it stands, features a unique setting with its proximity to the ocean. Furthermore, the passenger usage of the airport has outgrown its capacity. A previously, car and infrastructure dominated space is a reaction to the growth of the airport from regional emergency landing strip to international airport. As the shift in culture occurs, a new purpose built airport destination will be constructed.

Establish a link between airport and city to help revitalise Coolangatta’s hub

Through natural and fluid links, fostering stronger connection and a greater sense of community

A Garden Space

The central atrium space is large and open to create a sense of arrival within a crush space to accommodate all types of users. The space is versatile to allow plenty of circulation, mingling and socialising as well as featuring rotating experiences.

A Performance Space

An array of program can occupy the space from a simple refreshing garden space to art exhibitions or even performances. As the space will be used by not only passengers but also various tourists and locals alike, the atrium can be used flexibly to remain current and provide incentive for people to visit on a regular basis.
