Best Public Space 2006
Madrid Barajas International Airport
By Richard Rogers Partnership




In this dramatic new airport terminal, the ceiling—rolling sine waves of bamboo-clad steel—is held up by brightly painted columns, and there's sunlight everywhere. Rogers's design is "reminiscent of a sailboat or a classic ship," the jury remarked. "There's a lightness to it—a buoyancy." From arrival halls to check-in, from security to departure, spaces are clearly organized and easy to navigate, unified by the soaring central corridor.

Barajas Airport, Madrid, Spain
Architect: Richard Rogers Partnership
Co-architect: Estudio Lamela

The building presents a straightforward linear diagram, in the form of a clear sequence of spectacular spaces for both departing and arriving passengers. The parallel linear floor planes are separated from each other by dramatic, light-filled canyons across which bridges span.

A restrained and functional approach is consistently applied to great effect, resulting in a visually clean, remarkably uncluttered and soothing environment.

Terminal 4 is INCREDIBLE!!!

However it is only one part of the airport. The majority of airlines that serve Barajas are still operating out of this:


Google Earth

It will take more than "cosmetic" updates to help the old terminals.

The thread title says that the airport is "expanding" and there is no mention of expansion here. Are there plans to replace T1 T2 T3 with a new terminal that have not been mentioned?

They are going to be completely remodeled, so each one of them can handle international flights. Interiors and exteriors are going to have major cosmetic work, using new materials so they look like they were just built.

Good news , the sexy airport in the world - someone called it !

Madrid New Terminal Wins Stirling Architecture Prize

Madrid airport wins architecture prize

LONDON, Oct 15 (Reuters) - Madrid's new airport building, designed by the Richard Rogers Partnership and Spanish partners Lamela Studios, has won Britain's prestigious Stirling prize for architecture.

"Its a hymn to travel, to the excitement of travel," Richard Rogers of the new terminal and its satellite building after winning the award and its 20,000 ($37,220) pounds prize money.

"I think overall it has been extremely successful," Rogers told BBC television on Sunday.

Rogers, one of the world's best known architects, said the goal for the 1.2 billion pound New Area Terminal at Barajas Airport in Madrid was to create a "great wave of a roof" and to bring light into the structure.

The opening of the new terminal in February 2006 doubled the size of the airport, making it the second biggest in Europe and 10th in the world.

The architect said he wanted to make sure the 1 million square metre space was not dominated by shops or infrastructure such as escalators and baggage belts.

The building is characterised by natural light and structural supports painted in a graduated colour scheme to create a 1 km-long vista.

Previous winners of the prize, named after architect James Stirling and given by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA), include the Scottish Parliament building, the "Gherkin" Swiss Re tower in London and Gateshead's Millennium Bridge in northern England.

Airport scoops architecture prize

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/6050836.stm

Madrid's Barajas Airport has won the UK's most prestigious architecture award, the £20,000 Stirling Prize.
The colourful 1.2km-long Spanish airport building was designed by the Richard Rogers Partnership.

It is the first time the firm has won the Royal Institute of British Architects (Riba) prize.

The prize is awarded to architects for the building that has made the greatest contribution to British architecture in the past year.

'Spectacular spaces'

The judges said of the design: "Whatever the means of approach, by air or by land, the sheer scale and complexity of what has been tackled and achieved here cannot be overestimated.
