An Overview of the Design of the AAT Air-Cargo Handling Terminal, Hong Kong
A strategy of economy with engineered aesthetics was used to develop the design basis for the AAT Air-Cargo Handling Terminal at Chek Lap Kok, Hong Kong (see Fig l). The architectural and structural teams worked closely to develop engineered solutions that would be simultaneously attractive and of low cost. This paper outlines the progression of the design from concept to final design.
