Taiwan's largest
international airport is getting an architectural redesign, courtesy of Rogers
Stirk Harbour + Partners.
The British architects have beaten off other prestigious practices –
including Foster + Partners and UN Studio – to design the new Terminal 3
building of Taiwan's Taoyuan International Airport, formerly known Chiang
Kai-shek International Airport, with a proposal that is 'inherently simple
in its concept.'

partner at Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners explains: 'We have created a
rationally planned and easy to use airport that will be characterised by a
flowing sequence of beautifully lit, acoustically comfortable and
well-proportioned spaces.
It will be an airport where the drama of the spatial
experience is shared by all, at all times.' Working with Taiwan
engineering firm CECI and combining their learnings from Heathrow Terminal 5
and Barajas Terminal 4, RSHP's latest project will be compromised of a new
terminal building, boarding gates, concourses and a multi-function building
with an impressive transport infrastructure.
The dynamic, fluid structure will
allow for easy adaptations and future transformations without compromising on
passenger experience or architectural integrity.
Inspired and shaped by Taiwan's landscapes, seas and its natural pace of
life, the new terminal will be housed under an elegant hard shell
Within, adjustable scaling will enable to creation of changeable spaces,
increasing wellbeing and comfort of travellers.

the open spaces within it will have an urban quality akin to a city centre,'
adds Harbour.
'Addressing these spaces there will be a variety of buildings
that, together with the new and existing terminals, will form the heart of a
new compact, vibrant 'aero' city.' This story originally appeared on
