Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners (RSHP) has won an international competition to expand the Taoyuan International Airport – Taiwan‘s largest airport, formally known as Chiang Kai-shek International Airport. Their winning scheme for the airport’s new Terminal 3 building won the jury over for its “outstanding and innovative planning and design and highly efficient circulation,” according the airport’s official press release.
“The most compelling feature of their design is an interior experience that fluctuates and moves up and down to reflect changes in the users,” said the report.
The planned 640,000-square-meter building is being referenced as “Taiwan’s new national gateway.” Upon completion in 2020, RSHP will oversee the completion of a new “mega-Terminal” 3 building, along with boarding gates, concourses and a “Multi-Function Building” that will connect with the airport’s existing Terminals 1 and 2.
RSHP worked with CECI Engineering Consultants (ROC), Ove Arup and Partners Hong Kong Limited (UK) and Fei & Cheng Associates (ROC) on the winning design, which will soon be on display at the airport’s Terminal 2 building and the CKS Memorial in Taipei.
