I dont know if it will be the definite choice for the final scheme thou. The flooring needs better treatment for one thing!

Not so sure whether it's the final colour scheme as it's just a rendering......

The T3 terminal "box" with the one-of-a-kind roof will most likely be the most specatacular new airport building when it opens. At last, something different above the heads of the departing passengers. After all, all other new airport terminals that have come on stream in the past decade have well-nigh identical curved roofs with exposed steal girders underneath: the novelty value has well and truly worn off.

However, there's one area (no, two to be precise) that is possibly problematic.
The two trapezoid-shaped extensions (holdrooms, presumably) immediately adjacent to the terminal building are drawn with five double airbridges each. At five 747s that's approx. two thousand people, at three 380s and two smaller planes in between that's even more. How do they all fit into that thing simultaneously - how will that be compatible with Changi's image of a spacious place?

No worries about the spaciousness thing. Changi philosophy has always to build in excess of demand.....So even if the total capacity for T1 & T2 is 44 million per year(With the addition of T3, it will stretch to 64 million), the amount of passenger is merely about 29 million (though it might stretch to 30 million this year) at the present. Hence, it's highly unlikely that there will be any crowding.

Should there be any sign of strong traffic growth, there will be T4 and T5 in the future.....

Hmm...about the trapezoid thingy, the problem is we dont have the floor plans yet, and we dont know what is in there. Whatever the case, note that it least it isnt like in Terminal 2 opposite, which has two piers with alot more gates then the few for Terminal 3.



Interesting observation there thou!

Just unearthed this link from the depths of the web:
http://www.wilsonassoc.com/our_work/?s=59
That's mostly very artsy and vague. But! look at the line of aircraft getting ever darker towards the wording "Changi Terminal 3" (next to the word "lighting"). Right there is a section of the departures level floorplan. Squint carefully: it features holdroom seating laid out in a circular manner in the trapezoid. And very narrow alleys leading to each gate. So, line up 500 pax waiting to board in that alley, maybe two simultaneously...where's the relaxed spaciousness then?

Emm....according to some insider's info, the distance between the aerobridges would be about at least 20 metres apart.....so I dun think the "trapezium area will be that small........

Muahahaa....ok I know I know. I wont demand for it in public.

Anyway....I doubt those are finalised plans of the interior, as those can be changed drastically over the course of design and even during the building stage?

From the rendering, Terminal 3 looks way more modern than airport of the airports that I have seen thus far. The best thing is, it still has that inviting look to it. I mean there's all this flora and fauna admist the greyish structures. Airports in Asia nowadays typically are very cold. They are all so sleek and grey. Nothing warm.
