Description

Our proposal for Guangzhou terminal 3 is to create an environment that makes the airport a destination in itself. An airport incorporating local nature and culture and a clear sense of place for arriving and departing passengers. The proposal includes a large ground transportation center enveloping a botanical garden offering an acoustically sheltered environment and a standalone destination benefiting from the direct proximity to the multi modal traffic interchange.

The principles of the traditional Lingnan architecture and gardens has inspired us to create the garden airport. An experience where nature, and the landscapes of the Guangdong province is part of the passenger journey from arrival to departure.
It is a modern international airport with an identity grounded in local nature and a 2000-year-old culture.

The result is an airport that is an iconic destination and a unique experience to visit - whether you are leaving, arriving, or just stopping over.

The Guangzhou Airport is envisaged as the greenest airport in the world: Incorporating a natural ecosystem in the design, the natural elements will reduce noise, improve air quality, optimize indoor and outdoor microclimate and make Guangzhou Airport a true “airport of nature”.

The design allows different ways of moving through the airport, depending on the traveler’s needs. In a hurry, green fast tracks will lead you directly to your flight. With hours in-between flights, you can wander along biodiverse paths, linger in airside courtyards, eat, drink and shop under the canopies, and learn, sense, and experience the unique nature and culture of Guangdong.

The human experience comes first. We ensure that each journey is clear, simple, convenient, and easy. Intuitive navigation is achieved with landmarks, gestures and character districts that encourage natural flow and orientation, as well as through signage and other guiding instructions. Our planning and design help ‘step stone’ passengers throughout the entire terminal journey, both vertically and horizontally, by creating clear nodes and portals.

The environmental design strategy adopted is one in which climate, culture and context are considered holistically. Baiyun T3 will be an exemplar in environmental design and performance with the architectural design informed through climatic responsive and human centered design. Low energy (carbon) consumption, low water consumption, and low waste generation are an integral part of the technical design. The project is set as an example of how a design can be configured to address future challenges today – it is adaptable to exponential technological growth and developments, whilst equally meeting the future environmental performance challenges, and ultimately being humane.
