Schiphol Airport with Extensions
Dating from the 1960s, the passenger terminal building at Schiphol Airport has been eulogized for its crystal-clear parti. The arrivals hall occupies the ground floor and the departures hall the floor above. In both, passengers are led through a sequence of parallel zones: entrance, check-in counter, passport control, row of shops, waiting room. This configuration has been retained in the new Terminal West. Benthem Crouwel’s 150 metre long arrivals and departures hall is of constant section and presided over by an undulating steel roof on V-shaped columns.
