The character of the building expresses the prefabricated construction process

The supporting structure is a column-beam system of reinforced concrete elements, on which a wall and deck structure is suspended. The external cladding consists of aluminium panels and the internal cladding is covered with thin fibre cement panels.

Finger B is two storeys high with a wide traffic corridor, a lounge area at the top and a service area and parking area for service cars at the bottom.

The pedestrian area has light marble floors, the lounge niches have carpeted floors. The lounge areas on the west side of the finger have 500 seats.

 

 

"The finger is elegant and functional, a building design with the same technical expression as the large jets it services. A building with a clearly expressed function."
