This monograph is dedicated to the building of the new terminal T4 of the Madrid-Barajas airport. The graphic information of photographs, general plans and details is developed exhaustively, allowing to know in depth this singular building.
The terminal, which is the biggest in Spain, was commissioned to enable Barajas International Airport to compete with major hub airports within Europe.
For the drafting of the New Terminal Area project, an international contest promoted by Aena was convened. In October 1997 the proposal presented by the team formed by four companies was chosen: the Spanish architecture firm Estudio Lamela and the British Richard Rogers Partnership, the Spanish engineering company Initec and the British company TPS.

The core building comprises a sequence of parallel spaces separated by a linear block allowing daylight to penetrate deep into the interior. The same form is applied to the satellite, which is comprised of two linear blocks, one for passport control and the other containing the gates.
The bamboo linear roof structure is connected above by a chain of roof lights, permitting maximum flexibility in the arrangement of accommodation on each of the floors.
“In architectural terms they designed a wonderful building that makes an impact on everybody and created a truly functional and efficient airport that facilitates the flow of passengers through the building”.
