The plan is to keep the exteriors of old and new T2 completely different. That’s in the design statement. Not something I agree with but there you go. It will look like terminal one from opening day in my humble opinion.
People may say that I am missing the point, that I'm being too transfixed on the aesthetic of the building rather than its function, but its time to move away from this hop-potch building bolt on's.
Agree about pier B and C - they’re already not fit for purpose. One would hope the medium term sees the planned demo and rebuild of pier B should they want to keep it. It’s 1960s vintage at the core plus the 1994 Luthhansa Superhub addition and it shows. I’ve not been in pier C for a good 25 years now but can imagine the unsegregated original design is very restricting now.
Pier C is pretty much what it was back in the 80s (https://goo.gl/maps/nDxg9M4JZYF2) except with the addition of the wrap around glass corridor for arrivals. It even has the old bulky green screen monitors above each gate, although not in use any more. Its the only bit of T1 that hasn't really been revamped over the years?[/QUOTE]
