Kaohsiung International Airport new terminal


Master Planning and Schematic Design of the New Terminal of Kaohsiung International Airport


Kaohsiung International Airport (KHH), the second large airport in Taiwan, opened in 1997. Pursuant to the vision laid out in the “Kaohsiung International Airport 2035 Overall Plan”, we proposed to combine the new terminal, ground transportation center and the existing international terminal. Terminal and landscape design is based on the concept of gliding seagulls and waves, while the roof resembles an oil-paper umbrella from Meinung. The roof transforms the indoor space into an urban theater. The new terminal design combines transportation, industry, and imageries of the ocean and local culture to create an international airport belonging to the port city of Kaohsiung.
