_The masterplan positions the underground station at the heart of the airport. This will help reduce the walking distance between the train platforms and the entrances to the departure and arrival terminals.The elliptical well which is a central focus of the station’s design, is animated by the vertical movement of passengers. Colour-coded escalators help to orientate and channel passenger flows through the station. The circular roof built on ETFE allows natural light to penetrate deep into the internal space of the station. The project provides protection from sunlight and rain for the piazza, creating a public space which offers a safe, protected environment for the passengers.
