China Eastern Airlines Headquarters in Shanghai
OUTSTANDING PROJECT IN SHANGHAI
After a pre-qualification we were invited to a limited architectural competition ALONGSIDE American, English, and Chinese competitors.
The 225 000 m²project, inclludes headquarters and a flight operation center for CEA, China Eastern Airlines, China’s second largest airline, on a large, split level site approximately 66 000 m², in Shanghai Hongquiao Airport.
After the presentation in Shanghai at the end of July 2012, we were naturally very pleased to be confirmed as the winning architects.
It’s already full force in designing in cooperation with the client’s engineering group and our partner engineering side, the Shanghai-based part of Arup.
Our habit of faith, we have developed a soft and inviting project in an area characterized by angular, hard building bodies. Such is life between houses, public spaces and work zones of considerable importance.
The buildings will be used by 12,000 employees and with so many users the human aspect is especially important.
Our impression is that this concept stands out against the more traditional projects from our competitors.
Constructability and construction economy, however, are given great importance in the Chinese development environment. We have therefore focused on developing simple, rational building shells which together form a diverse, balanced whole.
The large access space has headquarters on one side and flight operation center on the other, a kind of terminal building itself, for flight crews to China Easterns flights from both Pudong and Hongqiao Airport.
Giant project at Brunstad is a big step closer to being realized after the council of Stokke gave the go-ahead Monday night.
