Singapore Changi Airport

Changi, Singapore
January 1st 2006

Although Terminal 2 is relatively new, Singapore Changi Airport decided to renovate the terminal to maintain a competitive edge in the airport market. Gensler and local architect of record, RSP Architects, Inc., recreated the terminal to have a unique sense of place that respects local context. The entry canopy, for example, employs the metaphor of bamboo: thin steel members and glass offer natural light and views while protecting passengers from Singapore's significant rainfall. Within, spaces are light-filled and landscaped with native plants.
