We are delighted about Werner Sobek AG presenting one of the most ambitious projects in this webinar: the Kuwait International Airport. Kuwait's international airport will be expanded in 2022 by a new terminal building (Terminal 2) based on a design by Forster + Partners. The building was planned without expansion joints, despite an edge length of 1.2 km and a roof area of more than 320,000 m². The main structure consists of curved pre-stressed concrete parts with a maximum span of 145m. A double-curved shell - which consists of innovative prefabricated cassettes - spans between the prefabricated members. The cassettes, made of steel and exposed concrete, determine the architectural appearance of the building and represent one of the most complex supporting structure. The size of the building, the complex interaction between the various components and the innovative systems are the main reasons making this project so extraordinary.
