COPENHAGEN AIRPORT, TRANSVERSE HALL
With a strong increase in air traffic, Architect Vilhelm Lauirtzen’s terminal from 1939 became too small. A new terminal based on new principles where crowding of passengers and baggage should be avoided, was planned in the first years of the fifties. This led to a building with separate passenger and baggage flows.
The terminal building is actually a large flexible volume that is pre-planned for extension in the direction of its length.
In 2002, VLA designed the recent renovation of the departure hall that returns the hall to its original state of clear expression and at the same time ensures that the terminal can facilitate new demands of efficiency and security.
