Libreville AIrport, very simplo design.

With over 85% of Gabon covered in lush tropical rainforest, it is little wonder that the country is set to become a top destination for ecotourism. To cope with the increase in visitor numbers, Libreville airport is relocating from its cramped city centre location to a new site on the outskirts of the city. One of the primary challenges posed by this location, however, came in preventing vast quantities of runoff water from the surrounding rainforest from flooding the runway. We responded by designing a large swale that will intercept the runoff, and channel it away from the two state of the art airport terminals that will provide an impressive gateway to Gabon.

The project Doesn't have a good design, and is not ambitious
