Well, they need to leave the doors open for that case... Anyway, transborder flights must have a different treatment as they have to follow very strict guidelines issued by the TSA, and the facilities should facilitate it.

Another not-winer proposal. This one by PASCALL+WATSON & SORDO MADALENO.

Mexico City International Airport, New Terminal
Mexico City is a key point in the network of global economics and one of the most important economic centres in the Americas. The New Mexico City International Airport (Nuevo Aeropuerto Internacional de la Ciudad de México or NAICM) development is a statement of Mexico’s confidence in a bright future, a voicing of its faith in both its own progress and its place as a leading economic power in the 21st century. The proposed new Mexico City Airport at Texcoco was considered a symbol of a contemporary world with which Mexicans can identify and in which international visitors can see a modern Mexico.

The adopted solution poses a response to the aeronautical concerns stated in the government’s masterplan, seeking to reduce reliance on automated people mover systems whilst drastically improving the passenger’s conditions and operational efficiency. This is achieved with a large capacity terminal (until 2028) which can be walked in its entirety.

Pascall+Watson’s design for the airport would allow optimal functionality, operational efficiency and future flexibility. In an innovative move, the team have used the building’s central spine to create a double-level retail experience with generous spaces showered with natural light, lush vegetation and dramatic views. The integrated gardens provide a sense of warmth, softness and tranquillity – sensations not commonly associated with past airport terminals.

Rather than a centralised lounge beyond security with a generic piers configuration beyond, a quality experience has instead been extended along the passenger’s journey, facilitating both fast-moving passengers and those who wish to browse or dwell. Not only are passengers exposed to constant natural light and gardens, but also the maximum number tenant frontages, each zone having been specifically designed for the likely type and nature of passengers flowing through it.

The design facilitates enhanced passenger flow and intuitive wayfinding throughout the terminal. It is devised to include minimum level changes, offers short connection times and wide flows, the least number of directional decisions and comfort for passengers with reduced mobility. A key feature of the scheme is that arriving passengers do not change level from the time that they leave the aircraft door up to the time they enter the taxi door, having natural light and views or gardens along the entire arriving journey. Rather than treating the arriving journey as secondary, this proposal seeks quality for all of the various passenger journeys.

Designing a terminal to be a world leader in sustainability was an integral part of the concept for NAICM. The central focus is low carbon emissions and the basic principles of passive design such as optimal orientation, a high-efficiency building shell, natural lighting, water saving technology, displacement ventilation and use of alternative energy generation. NAICM is designed to be one of the world’s prime energy-effective airports, setting a new standard for sustainability and environmental performance for future world-class airports.















Personally, one of my favorites.

Well if they incorporate those necessary features into the design of the new airport it would be relatively cheap to implement a US Pre-Clearance facility in the near future if officials choose to allow it. Actually that would probably be beneficial to Aeromexico and other US/Mexican airlines as they could then service smaller US airports that don't have US Customs facilities like DAL, LGA, or DCA.

Love the Sordo Madaleno design. It's much more discreet yet elegant than the Foster/Romero one

All were great proposal designs, but im my opinion the winner is just ICONIC, its an aiport that will look great and modern even 50 years from now, in this ages where airports are so generic and unfriendly, this airport will be in a league of its own with very few others and will be easily recognizible, i look forward to see it complete.

I have seen the other proposals and I think it is the best design of them all. Extraordinary and futuristic design!

Debo decir, que aun con lo loco que esta me gusta. Casi todas las propuestas involucran mucha vegetación dentro de la terminal, cosa que no se ve tanto en la propuesta de Foster, por lo menos en lo que le hemos visto.

The winning proposal by Norman Foster is definitely the one that stands out the most, but I do wonder with the reality of Mexican aviation - being dominated by low-cost carriers and all - whether there would be a clash between style and utility.

Mexican aviation is not dominated by low cost carriers at all. There are 4 major airlines in Mexico, Aeromexico, Volaris, Interjet and VivaAerobus, the last one been the onlythrue low cost airline in Mexico, same services as Ryanair, while Volaris started as a low coast to attract new customers, many of us have realized that they are not, their prices are sometimes as high as Aeromexico. Interjet is definately not a low cost, personally i think they have the nicest planes and service in Mexico and i love flying with them and last we have Aeromexico which is consider the flag carrier of Mexico, is the most international and the the biggest airline in Mexico, their prices are always high and the choice for many business travelers. Then you have other very small regional airlines that are very expensive like Aeromar and TAR, but overalll Mexican aviation is not low coast, its kind of expensive flying withing Mexico compared to EU or USA.

I'd keep it as a regular thread for now since it is more of a general discussion of an upcoming airport (unless circumstances arise that this thread becomes very popular and warrant frequent updates that deserves a lot of attention).

The best proposal?

...
This proposal although seemingly conservative in design, was the most advanced in sustainability. Kalach and partners have been working on a project to rescue the rivers and lakes of the city for decades and their project would have given that to the city.

http://www.kalachcom.ipower.com/mexi...page/pp09.html

It's a shame it won't become a reality but the winning proposal is indeed much more iconic which is the only thing the president really cares about. He needs his pharaonic construction to dilapidate the Country's budget. F** the lakes and rivers.
