Oksana Oksyukovska, a student at the Department of Architectural Design of Civil Buildings and Structures of the Kyiv National University of Construction and Architecture, created a project of the passenger terminal Mriya in the international freight Antonov airport in Hostomel.
Kyiv probably doesn’t need another passenger terminal, but the project looks really interesting. On the other hand, the idea to use Antonov Airport as a base for Ryanair and other low-cost carriers was once expressed by the Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman and the director of Boryspil Airport Pavlo Ryabikin. UIA, which planned to use Boeing 777s that required large hangars, was also interested in the airport’s infrastructure.
Oksana Oksyukovska’s project envisages the construction of a second runway at an angle to the existing one. It is near the intersection of the strips and it is proposed to build a terminal, the shape of which resembles a wing. Probably, from the departure hall there will be a wonderful view of the planes taking off and landing.
Designed for 1,000 passengers per hour, the terminal has a railway station, 8 gates, check-in area, VIP area, hotel, food court area, Duty Free, customs and border control area and everything else a passenger airport needs.
In addition, in front of the building you can see the memorial An-225 Mriya with a full-size aircraft. Well, this is absolutely fantastic! On the other hand, dreaming is good, creating projects that are not likely to be embodied in stone is also good, and that’s how architects learn. In addition, such bold, daring and, most importantly, our own projects are what Ukraine is fighting for, among other things.
Everything will be Ukraine!
