KAAN Architecten + RNDR The era of new mobility is coming closer, urban infrastructure faces the challenge of adding both new systems and patches to the existing. The increasing complexity in urban mobility has enhanced the great importance of nodes in urban infrastructure. Time spent in these infrastructural nodes has been stretched and the importance of ‘passenger experience’ has increased accordingly.
An infrastructural hub, as the node this in new mobility, is like a city of flows. Movements of people are not just determined by destination but also largely influenced by the space embracing them. When do people stop, how do they move; what is the different rhythm between queuing and wandering? As a hub of infrastructure, its ultimate goal is to provide smoothness. To accommodate and facilitate a seamless flow it is not just key to optimize functionality but also to enhance the interactivity of building systems with users. The more intelligent/smart buildings become the less that needs to be expressed in impressive and excessive formal complexity but rather enhanced by clarity and spatial openness in architecture with intelligent use of light and materials.
KAAN Architecten in collaboration with Estudio Lamela, ABT and Ineco, (abbreviated as KLAIR) is designing the new terminal at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol. Central to the design is the urban integration of the new terminal with the rest of Schiphol on both landside and airside to expand and reinforce the ONE Terminal concept. An overlapping area and a diversity of user flows distinguish the reception hall for departing passengers and make a distinctive space for the baggage reclaim hall underneath the raised check-in floor. Furthermore, short and direct routes on the landside, maintaining the efficient connection to train station, bus station and parking area are urban integration elements that contribute to keeping Schiphol a “compact city”.
The video installation presented here uses metaphorical impressions to express the notion of seamless flow in an era of new mobility. Through showing the immense density, variety, and seemingly chaotic actions and movements of people in contrast with a background that presents the freedom of running and walking in an abundantly lit open space we express our aim to create the future of mobility nodes – the ultimate fluent experience.
In the installation, a column of screens is located in the middle of the Biennale audience flow. Videos of busy walking movements are to correspond and emphasize the flow in the Biennale. In contrast, the big curved wall projects a movie of running and walking under the bright, spacious ceiling, expressing the sensation of both freedom and calmness such a space can provide.
由KAAN Architecten，Estudio Lamela，ABT和Ineco组成的KLAIR团队正在为阿姆斯特丹史基浦机场设计新的航站楼。该设计的核心便是新航站楼在城市尺度上和周边现有设施的整合。从陆侧到空侧，新航站楼确保了流线和空间的良好衔接，使得整个机场“枢纽“的概念得到了扩展和加强。机场通过纵向区分不同人流，为乘客创造了独立的离境大厅，并在出发层下方的行李提取大厅创造了独特的开敞空间。此外，机场尽可能地缩短与陆侧的连接。与火车站、公交车站、停车场等设施有效而紧密的衔接，保证了机场和原有环境关系的完成程度，更加强了史基浦的“紧凑之城”形象。
