The wide fare gates are no different from the ones at the T2 end now...

Back in early 2002 when we were still using the magnetic card system, the fare gates at the T2 end were instead the old ones...they just distanced each gate further from each other to achieve that wide gate effect...so it was odd to see such a huge gap in between the flaps...they were not designed for it...

The one at the T3 end were installed with the NEL ones right from the start as by the time the T3 end opened, the magnetic card system was already not in use...

That sounds more like a literal translation of an English idiom loh!

Anyway, we need updates!

Q+A with Teng Wai Man (Continued)

It's been 20 years since Changi opened. What have been the biggest changes since then?

Building technology, primarily. For instance the choice of glass in the days of T1 was limited. Having too many windows or large areas of glazing then meant a phenomenal heat load on the building with higher energy bills or localised discomfort. Also you could never get a particular type of glass to do everything. In an airport you need the envelope to deliver sound attenuation, sunshading, low thermal transmission, high transparency. One of our biggest problems in T2 was finding a glass that could give a view out at night (laughs).

i remember seeing a programme where scientists tried to recreate muscle using synthetic materials as muscles are a lot stronger and all that.. it was black and sleek and quite beautiful.. but i think they were using it for robots not buildings

even red exposed flesh.. imagine a 30 storey atrium of red exposed flesh? so nice?!! as long as uhm you dont look too hard or try to vandalise.
