Rogers Stirk + Harbour Terminal 5 still iconic

Heathrow Airport Terminal 5 (T5) at London’s main airport, was constructed to handle 35 million travellers a year.  The architects were Rogers Stirk Harbour & Partners with construction design by Pascall+Watson and stuctural engineering from Mott Macdonald and Arup.
All passengers whether arriving or departing, remain on one level while their luggage, climate control, support functions and management areas are below.

Terminal 5 (T5) is the largest free-standing structure in the UK measuring 396m long, 176m wide and 40m high.  There are actually four floors which are all enclosed by a curved steel-frame and glass roof – the size of five football pitches, designed to cascade light into the interior. The roof weighs 2,200 tonnes and is supported by slim columns around the perimeter resulting in an uncluttered concourse that is free from columns or supports.  This flexible space allows free-standing steel frame structures to be located within arrivals and departure areas that can be moved or reconfigured as requirements change.
