Présentation du contenu:
This project series documents long-term planning for airports near Kabul, Afghanistan from 1974-1990. The office identified the project number as 7408.
This project consisted of the planning of airports near Kabul for the years 1974-1990. This work was undertaken in joint venture with other Canadian firms who worked together on airport planning projects around the world. The firms, which consisted of Parkin Architects Planners as the architects, the Montreal Engineering Company Limited, and Peat, Marwick and Partners, joined with the local Afghan Bureau of Consulting Architects and Engineers for this project. It was to be funded by the Islamic Bank, with the Canadian government paying the design fees. The proposed airport, referred to as Logar Airport, consisted of a rectangular passenger terminal with each level set back to create the look of a staircase roofline. A 225 car parking lot, an administration building and a tower in the parking lot area were also included. The long-term plan showed a symmetrical addition built onto the passenger building and symmetrical 225 car parking lot to compliment it in the years following the original construction. An airport hotel was also proposed for future additions. A feasibility study for this project investigated Logar as a site for the airport, based on the ability to expand the terminal size for passenger processing and traffic, and the flexibility of the local topography. Planing, deplaning, processing and passenger flows were all investigated in this project, along with phasing and development plans. It is not clear from the project documentation if this project was ever built.
The project is recorded through drawings, a photograph, and textual records dating from 1974-1976. The drawings include a large number of base plans with overlays to study planing and deplaning flows, natural lighting, and passenger movements. Plans, sections and presentation drawings are also included. The textual records consist of reports on the project program and costs, interoffice memos, correspondence, and financial records.
