Masterplan Airport BER Berlin Brandenburg

In 2040, Airport City will line the central access road to Berlin Bran­den­burg Airport (BER) with office buildings, retail outlets, hotels and congress centres. On the basis of an analysis of the airport sur­round­ings and the search for a location for a second terminal building, ASTOC developed a master plan which adds a second terminal to the first which is currently being built by GMP Ar­chitek­ten and embeds it in Airport City with public spaces, offices and com­mer­cial buildings. The planning horizon from 2023 to 2040 saw the creation both of a com­pre­hen­sive economic de­vel­op­ment strategy for the airport and a spatial strategy which gives equal weight to the air and land-side de­vel­op­ment of the airport and its environs.

In 2040, BER will be used by 55 million pas­sen­gers a year. The urban de­vel­op­ment master plan examines not only the favourable location of the Airport City through its rail con­nec­tion to Berlin’s central station but also the option of con­nect­ing districts by means of an overhead railway. Starting on a scale of 1:10,000, sites were examined in detail down to scales of 1:1,000 and 1:500 and planning prepared on the basis of existing planning approval. 400,000 square metres of new land form an urban area with building heights typical of a town coupled with block-like struc­tures. With its sim­pli­fied shape, Terminal 2 can be flexibly adapted to a volatile aviation market with fluc­tu­at­ing demand for capacity.
