The new passenger terminal building at Al-Qassim Airport reinforces the region’s rich and proud agricultural, military and aviation heritage. The proposed design aims to reflect the culture and heritage of Al-Qassim in a modern and vibrant way through the use of innovative technologies, systems and a palette of elegant new materials.
The aerodynamic shape of the pier roof has been inspired by the motion of air over an aircraft wing, resulting in a higher/ grand roof over the central area of the main commercial level. The pier roof acts as a terminus to the ascending sloping roof to the central processor, peeling off at the centre to create a dramatic central space over the commercial area, becoming the central gathering point for departing passengers.
