Tripoli Airport Terminal Building Construction Project has been awarded to Odebrecht – TAV – CCC Joint Venture, as of September 2007. The works comprise construction of the new twin terminals, each having an area of 206,000 m2.
Curved and wavy steel roof structure of the project distinguishes itself at first sight. Mused by the sunset on a sea of sand, dunes on the horizon with soft curves; the 130,000 m² steel roof with recapping curves wants to slide and come to rest on the concrete. The silk screening on the façade glazing, together with the deep roof overhangs ensures that the terminal interior has maximum protection from harsh light. The inclined façades emphasize the sense of a generous interior space and reinforce the acoustical comfort.
The project is on hold because of the latest developments in the country.
