An engineering approach was used to develop the concept design of the new Kansai International Airport Terminal Building. The architecture and engineering were developed together to enhance the efficiency and comfort of the building for the user. The paper describes the development of the design of the terminal building from the competition concept to detailed design. Philip Dilley
Mr S. B. Desai (F) (Department of the Environment) As a member of the Institution, I would like to thank Professor Regan for his paper and, particularly, for his presentation. I believe that Professor Regan is one of the principal contributors to the background research and thinking behind the modern reinforced concrete shear design rules in the UK. My first impression on reading his paper was that he was not in favour of any further research in this field. It felt as if he invented a ball-game and now wishes to take the ball away and says: ‘There will be no game any more!’. I am glad that this is not the case!
