In fact, the original plan was for Terminal 3 to be an exact dublicate of Terminal 2, as mentioned in the beginning of the text above, but they decided to be a let their hair loose a little I suppose. So the body itself still stays rather boxy and conventional, but the hairstyle was quite...errm......permed-up?

I will try to post a graphic map of all three terminals later if I can find it.
so who's the architect for terminal 3? if som is just doing the roof.

CPG Corporation (refering to post #35). It is a privatised film which was once a governmental department responsible for infrastructural projects. I suppose this explains ALOT about why it is a box now?

It is the "latest." It was printed in a huge advertisement commemorating the commencement of construction at that time?

I scanned it in, and have to tweak it so that the graphic looks clearer and the usual halftone pixels are less visible. Be assured that the map is accurate, but I suspect the planes there dont seem to be fully accurate thou. They dont seem to tally with the number of aerobridges!

you actually counted?

maybe they used the biggest planes possible to fit them in. In reality planes come in different sizes.

Hm...I used to have a record of the number of aerobridges and even their respective gate numbers. I cant remember where that record is now, but I remember comparing that with this map, and they dont tally very well....

Maybe I should pay another visit to the airport and check the number of aerobridges again.

I finally managed to get the info from the airport itself....I realised the graphic was actually quite accurate, except for one error in the North Pier of Terminal 1!

Q+A with Teng Wai Man (Continued)

If the architect is merely arbitrator, wherein lies your authority?

I'm not suggesting that we should design by consensus. I am arguing that the designers are too often swayed by arguments of style and space or by what we perceive, as a professional community, to be the forces of history. We should start by asking what, at the heart of this project brief, is the human condition? This is not an argument for functionalism. There is more to the human condition than activity alone. We need to understand perceptions and realities. The history of humanity is the history of competing realities.

We need to start by asking what do the users of this building feel? What do they fear? Is their experience constant throughout the time they spend in the building? Does it depend on their gender, age or nationality?

My job is to bring together these needs, requirements and aspirations and integrate them into a cohesive entity, one that is more than the sum of its parts. The problem is that many of these user-needs are unspoken. You will not find them in the project brief. Often clients are incapable of articulating them, so the primary task of an architect is that of seeking out and finding insights into the human condition. He must then bring to bear technical and administrative skills that can help translate vision to reality.

Can questions about the human condition be answered during the design process?

Yes. Sometimes through observation and sometimes by extrapolation. Quite often by simply asking people what they think. It doesn't have to be a scientific process of data collection... nothing elaborate or expensive. The inclination to understand the human condition is in us: it is the ability to empathise, to extract from our own experiences a close approximation of another's. But we don't use this faculty much. When an architect receives a project brief, the first impulse is to look for similar buildings in magazines or books. The priorities of space, structural expressiveness and stylistic innovation live on as do the mistakes with regard to climate, clarity, scale.

Is this approximation harder with some buildings such as airports?

With airports there is more to reckon with - a greater number of people, more user groups, complex information systems. The overlap and conflict between realities can be bewildering at first. But it takes a little longer to sort out, that's all.
