New terminal, aircraft control tower, taxiway, and apron parking facility at an international airport. The new terminal combines precast and cast-in-place concrete with structural steel to tightly integrate the architectural expression with the structure. Features include a rotunda with a 79-m (260-ft) span bowl-shaped roof. The roof has a 9.1-m (30-ft) diameter hole in the center, through which a dramatic rain-made waterfall courses.
