The terminal is formed with the oldest geometric shape a Circle. The terminal forms a semi circle resting on ground with a half arch emerging from the one end of the semi circle. The Terminal form has been derived as a free flowing symbolizing a wave representing the proximity of sea and Beaches of Goa. To satisfy these needs, the building form developed is very simple and bold. It is free flowing & is curvilinear in one direction. The building envelope consists of long curved glass faade which gives the building the transparent and modern look with a solid roof with sleek skylights which is free flowing in form resembling a wave and hence the proximity to the sea.
