Structural Type – Truss Roof
Calatrava's design is composed of a main hall, two wings for accepting
train, car and bus traffic, and also a gallery leading into the main airport
building.
The overall structural system was generated on AutoCAD which provided the basis
for structural calculations.
The concourse wings extend 500 meters to both the northeast and southwest,
while the gallery reaches out to the southeast over a distance of 180 meters.
The idea of this design refers to the metaphor of a bird, expressing flight and a
sense of lightness
