Airbaltic Passenger Terminal in Riga, Latvia by MSB Arquitectos + ahad Arquitectos

Tuesday, April 16th, 2013

Article source: MSB Arquitectos + ahad Arquitectos

This work opens our participation with ahead – architects, based in London, a studio which we now have a partnership. Our scheme sets the terminal building in the middle of the two piers, demonstrating a strong connection with both of them. The continuous language of form, materials and expression shape both interior and exterior of the terminal. Further-more, the proposed design is intended to be read as one object; one entity where both piers play an inner complicity.
