Changi Airport Terminal 2

A tropical metropolis

The Project

A winning entry from an international competition, the terminal’s facelift has made it greener, brighter and bigger. Centred on a tropical theme, the design embraces daylight, lush landscaping and transparency. The entrance is uplifted with a leaf-shaped canopy, shielding travellers from the elements.
