With the construction of Tiruchirappalli (Trichy) International Airport’s new terminal now more than 40% complete and scheduled to open by March 2022, Pascall+Watson has released a video highlighting its design for the striking new building, which will create a powerful architectural symbol for the Indian state of Tamil Nadu.
Pascall+Watson’s concept fuses references from the city’s local heritage and culture with a contemporary palette of materials to create a unique sense of place and identity. The expressive roof form and multi-layered facade take inspiration from the geometry, textures and colours of Trichy’s traditional temple architecture.
Generous natural light and lush landscaped gardens bring a calming backdrop to the expansive forecourt and arrivals concourse, which lead to the streamlined passenger processing facilities and departures lounge.
The scheme, which aims to achieve a GRIHA Council Four Star rating, utilizes renewable energy measures such as rainwater harvesting, ground source heat pumps and photovoltaic panels.
