The Raumfachwerk `proposal, where timber plays a central role, has won the bid to renovate Dock A and adjacent buildings at Zurich’s airport. The scheme drawn up by BIG (Bjarke Ingels Group), HOK, 10:8, and Buro Happold carried the day over those submitted y teams led by Foster + Partners, Grimshaw Architects, and SOM, among others. The sculptural structure of local timber, built with prefabricated components, is based on columns that branch out in V shapes, evoking the image of Alpine woods. A linear skylight widens towards the seven-level central atrium, where the control tower is placed. The roof is covered with photovoltaic panels.
