New airport terminal will focus on passenger experience, says architect

CNA
October 31, 2015, 12:22 am TWN






























TAIPEI -- The design of Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport's third terminal will focus on creating a unique passenger experience, the winning architect said Friday after learning his design had been selected for the project.




The concept behind the design will be to use every corner of the Terminal 3 complex, which will include a multi-function building that will mainly accommodate retailers and entertainment providers, said project architect Andrew Tyley.

There will also be a plaza that connects the terminal and the multi-function building so a spacious area will be available for public use, Tyley said of the 640,000-square meter project, which is scheduled to be completed in 2020.

"We have created an urban place in a public realm," said Tyley, who is with the British architectural firm Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners.

The third terminal itself will also take an unconventional approach by integrating the arrival area into the much-larger departure area so that all passengers can fully appreciate the building, he said.

The travel experiences of arriving passengers are often overlooked, Tyley said, explaining that arrival areas are roughly only one-fourth the size of departure areas at major airports across the world and are often located at lower levels, preventing travelers from having a fuller view of the terminal.

In his project, however, the arrival level is placed above the departure level and designed like a balcony so that all passengers could appreciate the ceiling that will be decorated with pedal installations, Tyley said.

Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners defeated more than 300 design companies from 13 countries and regions to win the NT$74.6 billion (US$2.29 billion) project, because of what the jury described as the bid's innovative planning and highly efficient traffic flow design.

The airport, meanwhile, said it plans to introduce several new procedures that are likely to expand its capacity to 45 million passengers per year by 2018 so that it can deal with an estimated 10 percent annual growth in passenger traffic.

Fei Hourng-jiun, chief executive officer of Taoyuan Airport Corp., said the focus will be mainly on improving boarding efficiency by installing more self-service facilities for passenger check-in processing and bag drops.

For example, up to 10 bag drop kiosks could be installed at Taipei Main Station when the new MRT line between Taipei and the Taoyuan airport opens next March, he said.

That would allow passengers to check their luggage even before they arrive at the airport, and has the potential to increase the airport's annual capacity by 1 million passengers, Fei said.

RSHP wins competition for T3 at Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport.



Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners have won a competition to design the new Terminal 3 building of Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport. The scheme will deliver a new terminal building, boarding gates, concourses and a multi-function building, along with transport infrastructure.


The practice, working alongside Taiwan engineering firm CECI, saw off competition from Foster + Partners and UN Studio to win the project. The jury said that it had been impressed with the ‘innovative planning and design’ submitted by RSHP.

The design for Taoyuan Terminal 3 synthesises the practice’s previous major airport experience with the specific brief. It has brought together the flexibility of the single span, loose fit volume of Heathrow Terminal 5 with the warmth and human qualities of the flowing interior spaces of Barajas Terminal 4. The result is a unique, dynamic and fluid architecture that allows for easy adaption and future transformation of airport functions without compromising the passenger experience or the architectural integrity.

The RSHP proposal is inherently simple in its concept. The design is inspired by Taiwan’s beautiful landscapes, the seas surrounding it, its rhythms of nature and life to create a series of unique interior places designed for their purpose and protected beneath an elegant hard shell roof. Within, a soft inner surface is malleable and dynamic to celebrate and form the ever changing spaces below. The nature of the interior spaces whether grand, intimate, uniform or dramatic and the extent of those spaces too can be changed. This adjustable scaling will give passengers spatial clarity in all areas; large, small, busy or quiet, to reduce stress and improve wellbeing and comfort. This flexibility ensures the airport is always at its best and suitably presented as the principal gateway to and from Taiwan to the rest of the world.

This terminal will be the first of a new generation, a highlight in the journey for new and seasoned travellers alike. It will offer arriving passengers an equality of spatial experience to those departing. Its rational plan arrangement is forecast to deliver minimum connection times of just 40 minutes, the best in the region, with simple way-finding and airside connectivity.

Ivan Harbour, Partner, Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners said “We are delighted to have won the competition for the Third terminal at Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport.

“We have worked in Taiwan for 15 years and have made many friends during that time. This competition is the product of a successful international joint venture with those colleagues.

Our proposal is focussed on a passenger’s experience with a deliberate strategy to absorb constant future change, whilst always retaining the integrity of its unique design. The terminal will be designed to meet the highest sustainability criteria; holistic engineering and architecture.

“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.

The approach to the airport and the open spaces within it will have an urban quality akin to a city centre. 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.”

Formerly known as Chiang Kai-shek International Airport, the airport is the largest in Taiwan and the eleventh busiest in the world. Upon completion in 2020 the new terminal will be able to host 45 million passengers a year.

The competition team for T3 comprised of: Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners, CECI, Arup, Fei & Cheng Associates, Gillespies, The Design Solution, Fraport, OTC Planning & Design and BNP Associates.

‘Central Park’ to replace airport by 2020

TSAI CONCURSPP Legislator Pasuya Yao said at a forum that the party’s presidential candidate is in favor of a proposal to vacate Songshan airport by 2020

The Taipei City Government yesterday said it hopes to vacate the site currently occupied by Taipei International Airport (Songshan airport) by 2020, and that it plans to transform the site into a 330-hectare “Central Park” with an emphasis on ecology, leisure and humanities.

Taipei Deputy Mayor Charles Lin (林欽榮) unveiled the plan at a forum in Taipei attended by government officials from Taipei, New Taipei City, Keelung and Taoyuan, as well as representatives of presidential candidates, to discuss the future of the airport, which participants said should be vacated and merged with Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport.

The plan involves linking a strip of land vacated by the Songshan airport on the southern bank of the Keelung River (基隆河), with river sections in Taipei’s Dazhi (大直) and Dawan (大灣) areas, which Lin said would make for a “wetland park” covering 162 hectares.

The park would benefit from its close proximity to the 170-hectare Taipei Expo Park (花博公園), where the Yuanshan natural landscape park is to be built after the city decided to relocate the Taipei City Museum to the former site of the Taipei City Council over concerns about potential damage the construction of the museum could cause local freshwater ecology and the nearby Yuanshan Archeological Site (圓山遺址).

Together, the Taipei Expo Park and the wetland park would serve as the city’s “Central Park,” where Taipei residents could spend leisure time and take part in recreational activities, Lin said.

A series of adjacent spaces have been designated along the south side of the park for the purpose of promoting culture in Taipei, pushing urban renewal projects and accommodating central government agencies should the need for relocation arise, Lin said.

Taipei Department of Urban Development Commissioner Lin Jou-min (林洲民) said the park would make for an ideal venue for outdoor movie screenings, concerts and live broadcasts of sports events, adding that the city plans to build a 23km circular light-rail system.

On why Songshan airport should merge with Taoyuan airport, Lin said that the annual passenger volume at Songshan airport has decreased rapidly since Taoyuan airport came into service in 1979, and that, except operating some flights to Japan and South Korea, it is now mainly responsible for domestic flights.

Songshan airport has just one runway, which limits its capacity to operate flights.

Due to overlapping airspace between the two airports, delays in arrivals and departures often occur, and a height restriction is imposed on nearby buildings to uphold flight safety, which hampers urban development, Lin said.

Reduced capacity in the wake of Songshan airport’s possible merger would be offset by the construction of Terminal Four at Taoyuan airport, which is estimated to add 5 million passengers to the facility’s annual passenger volume after its completion next year, Lin said.

Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) Legislator Pasuya Yao (姚文智), who represented DPP presidential candidate Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) at the forum, said Tsai is in favor of vacating Songshan airport by 2020.

Yao said the addition of Terminal Four would raise Taoyuan airport’s annual capacity to about 42 million in 2018, which would be enough to process the nation’s passenger volume, which totaled 41.91 million last year.

The capacity is set to increase further in 2020, to about 57 million, when Terminal Three is scheduled to begin operations, he said.

Yao said that the Chinese Nationalist Party’s (KMT) had been inefficienct in conducting work to build a third runway at Taoyuan airport, proposed in 2008, which he said has hampered the merger.

The KMT hopes to begin construction in 2020 and finish it in 2030, Yao said.

Taipei Mayor Ko Wen-je (柯文哲) said that when the merger can be carried out would depend on when the runway and the terminal are completed, adding that his administration would establish two task forces to attend to related issues.

Airport unveils vehicle diversion plan

2016/04/19 21:29:07



(Graphic courtesy of Taoyuan International Airport Corp.)


Taipei, April 19 (CNA) Transportation vehicles will be required to slow down and use a diversion route to Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport beginning July in response to planned construction work at the airport. The new measure is expected to extend motorists' travel time to the airport by 15-20 minutes during peak traffic periods, the airport's operator said Tuesday.

With driving routes between highways and the airport to be adjusted for planned construction of the airport's Terminal 3 and for relocation of WC Taxiway, the speed limit for motorists will be lowered from 70 to 50 kilometers per hour, according to Taoyuan International Airport Corp.

Under the company's plan, during the first phase between July 1 and May 2017, the south terminal road providing access to the airport from the highway will be closed and vehicles will only be allowed to travel on the north terminal road.

The company advised drivers to follow traffic signs at the airport and passengers use public transport to reach the airport. The company also recommended all passengers arrive at the airport as early as possible.

The second phase of traffic control measures will be imposed between July 2017 and May 2018 when the existing 1,082-meter WC Taxiway will be split into two new parallel taxiways, according to the company.

After the taxiway is completed as scheduled in the fourth quarter of 2018, it will be able to accommodate two A380 superjumbo aircraft concurrently.

Construction on Terminal 3 is set to be completed by 2020.

I am new to post on this forum. But, I have been reading this forum for many years already.

Really hope that some one, don't know who would be more positive and not whining on every things that happen here. It does not make you smarter or more sophisticated than other by putting down on everything that you see here in Taiwan.

Be more positive! Try it! It will make your life better...
