The objectives of Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport are to become a large-scale hub airport, serving the aviation market in East Asia. The Multi Function Buildings will link Terminal 3 and existing Terminal 2 to form a Mega-Terminal. The main design concepts for this project are “Smart, Green and Culture”. With high efficient operating system to provide high quality passenger services and transportation function, the project will be developed as a sustainable and intelligent airport, with comprehensive facilities encompassing functions in tourism, shopping, culture and arts to create new traveling experiences.

This project will be conducted as an international competition. Outstanding design proposals and professional services teams from all over the world are solicited to develop the project. This project intends not only to satisfy the rapidly growing demand in passenger/cargo volume, but also to absorb advanced technologies such as self check-in counter, bag-drop system, Building Information Modeling (BIM) and Energy Management System (EMS) to create a magnificent Terminal in all respects.
