Natal Airport

This project consists of a Passenger Terminal based on a system in harmony with the region's weather, independent of the projects according to the formal imagery of flight (birds bone structure, steel structure of the plane) but without renouncing them. The objective is for the pre-flight experience to become an end, and not a means.

Thus, we depart simple and straightforward assumptions (slope roof, skylights triangulated,
structure, etc..). As these assumptions are put together, the building is formalized as something proper to Natal.
