I loved how some renders show some kind a spaceships (like Naboo silver shuttles).



Surely, new airports like Mexico's should be prepared for space travels in the future.

Btw, in some renders I see a glimpse of other buildings which, I presume, are part of a second phase.

info:

Quote:
The new International Airport of Mexico City, will be developed by nine Mexican construction firms in a single consortium.

This holding company divided in equal shares of 11%, except two, one of which will be the minority of the whole group, with about 5%, and one that will be majority with about 18% share of the holding.

The consortium's chairmanship will be rotated every six months during the stage of construction of the first phase, in which the first two runways of six and the terminal will be built for entering operations in mid 2018.

The nine firms and their holdings are:

COCONAL -11%
La Peninsular -11%
Tradeco -11%
Prodemex -11%
CARSO -11%
Teya -11%
GIA -11%
ICA -18%
Marhnos -5%

Any info for the length of the two first runways ? I have read somewhere that long flights out from Mexico City have to stop in Mexico somewhere else.

4500m aprox, yet to confirm but 100% sure longer than the actual 3900m of the old airport.

Here's one of the proposals (that dind't win, of course). By Helmut Jahn.

JAHN + LOGUER + ADG proposal for new mexico city airport competition


led by architect francisco gonzalez-pulido, the chicago-based architecture office JAHN has teamed up with local firms LOGUER and ADG to envision a proposal for the new mexico city airport design competition. The scheme houses the front end of the main terminal beneath a rowed field of canopy structures arranged in a triangular plan. the strategy results in two levels of open floor plans, provided with ample daylight through the roof’s gradual stepping configuration. beyond, the layout extends into two appendages as well as a satellite terminal to organize the flight gates.





chief designer and president of JAHN, francisco gonzalez-pulido, describes his interest and intentions for the project:

‘as both an architect and a mexican, I am honored to have been a part of this historic process. this was an opportunity for me personally to create something inspired by my heritage. more than an efficient and functional machine for transportation, I envisioned an airport as a technological, social and cultural manifest; deeply rooted in the history of the site but also respectful to the life of the valley of mexico. I wanted mexico to be in the forefront of innovation, comparable to our in projects like the bangkok airport and post tower. our team was outstanding. our design was ahead of its time. for me it is still the best.

Nice proposal but I think that now airports should start all with a single terminal and then enlarge or make another one as soon as you reach capacity and you need a new runway.

I actually liked the design of the Helmut Jahn terminal more than the Norman Foster design as far as appearances go.
