Supporting Buildings at Ben Gurion Airport

The supporting structures at Ben Gurion Airport are an integral part of the BGA 2000 airport. At its center is Terminal 3 that replaced Terminal 1 as the international flight terminal.
 
Since the architectural detailing was carried out by several firms, there was a need to establish a uniform planning code, which would permit a certain degree of artistic expression while preventing architectural chaos. Under the guiding principle, several functions were concentrated under one roof. Keeping in mind that airport structures are also experienced from the air, the programme outlined three-dimensional metal roofs to provide an aerodynamic hi-tech image.
 
Supporting structures, as indicated by their name, are intended to provide space for all the operational and maintenance aspects of the airport. Their location in two regions surrounding the new terminal from east and west lend them a frame-like nature, and thus a representational function.
