A new airport for the city of Medan in Sumatra, Indonesia.
Services: Master Planning
A new airport for the city of Medan in Sumatra, Indonesia was long overdue and MAP relished the challenge of building an airport terminal, as most architectural firms do. Having worked on the Manilla Airport project a few years before MAP was able to quickly put together a schematic and some compelling images for the site. The plan was a simple linear airside concourse served at its centre by a rectangular landscape pavilion with light and airy interiors. The architecture is simple, dependent on elegant engineering to create graceful, gently curving steel roof trusses supported on lightweight V-shaped columns.
