Location: Mumbai And Delhi, India
As part of Indian government's initiative of modernising and restructuring airport infrastructure, the architect was commissioned to give a long overdue facelift and space addition to the delhi and mumbai airport terminals. between them, delhi and mumbai account for a large quantum of the local air traffic but the facilities were rundown and undersized. one of the most demanding tasks in architecture is to give new form to what already exists. In this particular case, the objective was not only to renovate and expand existing buildings, but also creating a new image. The motivation for the projects was derived from the poetic seduction of aeroplanes with their aura of speed and dynamism. Appropriately, the architect endeavoured to give a forceful character to the form by using strong sinuous lines. The modern facades of the new terminal buildings are crafted with aluminium composite panels and glass.
