Reception of Royal and Political Dignitaries

Richard Rogers Partnership, London and Studio Lamela, Madrid designed this independent terminal building with appealing and elegant architecture for the reception of royal and political dignitaries. The double layered membrane above the transparent entrance hall roof provides a prominent design feature and also serves as weather protection. The primary structure of the membrane roof consists of ten double arched vertical steel trusses and the two visor beams cantilevering out at each end. The upper and the lower membrane in conjunction with the valley cables in the centre of each bay and layer stabilise the structure. Overall the “Pabellón de Estado” has a very appealing and compelling design and was completed with a very professional co-operation of all participants of this project.
