Site conditions / new location.
New Rail Baltic Parnu passenger terminal is located next to Parnu River, in the south part of Parnu town. The current site is considered to become a transportation hub for all public transports in the near future. In order to use the full potential of the site and its context, as well as to preserve nature, the new terminal building will be located in the south part of the competition area, next to the future Rail Baltic railroads. The new location of the terminal building creates an imaginary axis of future connection between both river and overland transportation networks. Also, since the new terminal buildings is within walking distance from a drop-off area for the public transportation, it will also serve as a bus stop for city buses, as well as an drop off zone for private vehicles and public taxis. Therefore, the new location of terminal building will become the central junction for all transportation networks.

In continuation of the study of vector based geometries, the Hong Kong Ferry Terminalis a proposal that demonstrates the aesthetics of vector curvatures and natural parameterization. The formulation of forces and arcs give rise to multiplicity in Euclidean geometry around a given set of parameters. Due to the magnitude and direction of layered line segments, the connecting lines generate varied degrees of arcing paths and surfaces, from simple to the complex. The increase in variables may restrict or give rise to excessive deformation in reasoned geometric expression. The intention behind the ferry terminal is to focus the current modes of curved vector tectonics and apply its discourse into the synthesis ofthe body or shell of the building.

Ten years ago, Mumbai’s Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport welcomed six million passengers per year through its gates; today it serves nearly five times that number. With the city’s emergence as India’s financial capital and the country’s rapidly expanding and economically mobile middle class, the existing airport infrastructure proved unable to support the growing volume of domestic and global traffic, resulting in frequent delays. By orchestrating the complex web of passengers and planes into a design that feels intuitive and responds to the region’s rocketing growth, the new Terminal 2 asserts the airport’s place as a preeminent gateway to India.
