Singapore Changi Airport's New Terminal Design Unveiled

The interior design and layout of Singapore Changi Airport's new Terminal 3 was unveiled at a topping-out ceremony May 29. The event marks the project's move to its next phase, completion of the interior. The terminal is scheduled to open in early 2008. The seven-story building is across the existing Terminal 2; three of the levels are below ground and the other four are above ground. Signature elements include more than 900 skylights in the roof with reflector panels to control the amount of light allowed into the building during daytime hours. The new terminal also will have a five-story-high vertical garden. Also set aside is space for more than 70 shops and more than 30 food-and-beverage outlets.
