Kuala Lumpur International Airport, Malaysia

Airports, Sport & Wellness,

Sixty kilometres from the Malaysian capital of Kuala Lumpur is the international airport designed by Japanese architect Kisho Kurokawa, winner of a competition held in 1992.



Kuala Lumpur International Airport, Malaysia This prestigious project has allowed the country to restore the national identity it had largely lost in the process of modernisation: the airport is to be expanded considerably over the next fifty years, growing to four times its current size.
The project allows Kurokawa to give full expression to his architectural theories, creating a sequence of spaces formally characterised by their own structures, decorations and roofs.
The airport in its current form consists of three buildings: the Main Terminal Building (MTB) at ground level, hidden behind a screen formed of supporting volumes which had partly been built to the designs of other architects.
The Arrivals Hall is on the lower level, and beyond the Main Terminal Building is the Contact Pier (CP) for short flights and local traffic.
