“These days airports have become a destination in their own right. In fact, they typically receive more visitors than many city centers. This makes it even more important for airports to also perform some of the same functions as cities. We’re making this happen in Terminal 3.” – Christoph Mäckler, the architect who designed Terminal 3
The new terminal isn’t only designed to make passengers feel good. The aim is also to provide a pleasant ambiance for employees to work in. Artificial lighting is therefore kept to a minimum. There is plenty of glass to admit natural daylight into the expansive halls and spaces. Pipes and conduits are optimally integrated into the architecture without becoming eyesores or diminishing the sense of spaciousness. The aim is naturally also for visitors and shopping fans to be wowed by the new terminal. The marketplace at the core of Terminal 3 will accommodate a multitude of boutiques and shops on around 6,000 square meters – accompanied by multifaceted gastronomic offerings for air travelers.
