Integrated Passenger Terminal at Lucknow Airport, Public Spaces-[]

Conceived using the primal image of a paper plane, the design of the terminal explores the aesthetics of flight through its cantilevered roofs.

Concept:
The notion of flight and man’s mythic fascination with it is reborn in every child as he folds his paper plane to launch it into the sky. The paper plane with its supple, folded wings – the symbol for the elemental flight that catches our fancy as children – becomes the starting point for the design of Lucknow Airport. The terminal building’s elevation to the sky resembles the folded wings of the paper plane. Large wing-like cantilevers on either side of the 200m long terminal building suggest lightness and swiftness. The building itself appears as a dynamic object preparing to take flight. Inside, the gently curving ceiling gives the feeling of being under the belly of a giant aircraft.

Structural Design:
The structure is formed by a set of variable span portals with fixed connections spanned across by variable space trusses that form the final form of the ‘wings’. The design of the section of the portal has been arrived at using a composite of rolled sections forming on overall dimension of 733mm by 375mm. The maximum span of the portals is roughly 47m. The maximum cantilever achieved by the space trusses is over 25m. The structure has been designed to stringent IS and BS codes pertaining to stability against wind, earthquakes etc.
