Multi-level car park, Chennai Airport
The "Green Gate" structure sports a green roof designed with a folding geometry.
A parking garage with a green roof creates what the designers describe as a “green gate” to the terminal.. The multi-level car parking structures proposed are expected to cater to 600 cars each and will have no hard surface. The structure sports a green roof designed with a folding geometry directing the run-off to the elliptical openings in the surface. During rains, the water would fall through it to create a series of “rain curtains” into the cisterns within the garage structure which can be used later for irrigational purposes.
As principal architect, Gurpreet S Shah contends “The project is not just a feather in the cap of an architect but a jewel in the crown for airports designed in the Asia Pacific”. The design offers a lot of firsts in the field of design and structural technology which could be adapted in the times of cone.
