I noticed when looking at the renderings that there was an absence of any parking facility.

Were designers planning to build an underground parking structure underneath the garden or something?

XA-DUG explained us already in another forum, it would be underground, beneath of the cactaceas (plants down the "X").

Travelators?

I didn't see any travelators in the videos or photos. The distances seem huge for passengers to go from one point to another.

Otherwise an impressive project like many around the world. In the meantime London is discussing whether to build one additional runway...

So far I'm loving the design of this airport. I'm not so sure of "short walking distances inside the building", from the renders hallways looks loooooooong and infinite. Kudos for Mexico. Hopefully it gets done on schedule and on budget.

Beautiful and visionary design. A lightweight structure like that makes sense in the marshy soil in that area between Mexico City and Texcoco.

I wonder why there was so little info about the tendering process though? I only saw Norten's design besides Foster's. Maybe it was all but a foregone conclusion who would win it?

I have noticed that the airport (beautiful!) would be built in the Zona Federal del Lago de Texcoco, where another airport project was abandoned a decade ago. At the time there had been environmental and social concerns about the project (the previous federal government even wanted to transform the area in a vast park two year ago!). This project indeed poses as "sustainable", but how do they really tackle these isues?

They will create more water reservoirs just South of the new airport were they will collect water from the rivers that flow westbound into the airport's area. They will have a lot more capacity than there is today and it will help prevent floodings. They will also intubate some channels and rivers and build some water treatment plants.

In the end we will have more lakes and more green areas.

Due to Mexico City climate there is not needed to much energy for heating or cooling the building. There will be implemented several technologies to save energy in the order of 47% with the use of natural lightning, LED, insulation plus geothermal conditioning through heat pipes. The rest of energy requirements will be covered by a Biogas plant in a nearby old metropolitan landfill (Bordo Poniente) that served the city through decades and now is decommissioned, this plant will fulfill electricity needs up to 90%. The canopy will have thin film solar cells to cover the rest of electricity needs. The canopy also will recover rain water and canalize it to a treating plant for services and irrigation saving up to 50% the water usage that the actual airport requires.

Like the idea of an environmental friendly building and the use or renewables although the landfill if not in use anymore will stop producing gas.

Eventually nearly 2030 the landfill will come a to a halt, by then the depleted cells (now it has 3 depleted and 1 productive) will be transformed into biodigesters and the new organic wastes of the city will recharge the battery
