Link corridor

Underground level link corridor

The link corridor was created in response to the introduction of the Schengen Agreement at Zurich Airport. At underground level, it links the existing Passport Control Hall with the new „Grüezi“ (Bus Arrival) in the finger-type Dock B.

Link corridor Dock B

Materiality and colour scheme are modelled on the existing fabric. Viewed from the tarmac, at the point where the escalators emerge from below ground, the building exterior reads as an unassuming, neutrally designed, single-storey structure. On the inside, however, the entry into the underworld of the airport is signalled by changes of lighting and material. Below ground, concrete, glass and generally hard materials predominate. Further on, a semi-transparent facade shrouded in iridescent textiles heralds the transition to the bustling environment of Dock B.
