"Mixing Culture with the Future
It’s a new Guadalajara. A new airport terminal that is all about the customer experience. Today’s airport design goes beyond just transportation; it is a living, breathing, complex system that passengers experience in a unique way. Which is why the client tasked the design firm to bring together the area’s local culture, music and food to Terminal 2 to fully enhance the customer experience. The inspiration came from the vast, beautiful fields of the native agave, the beautiful canyons, the brilliant Mexican eagle and the flourishing Jarabe Tapatio dancers to truly bring out the flavor of Guadalajara.
From curbside to airside, the journey is easy, fluid and familiar. Whether a traveler is arriving, departing, or connecting, they have everything they need — restaurants and bars, hotel amenities, family spaces and facilities and pet care. Comfortable waiting areas with eco-friendly interior gardens and lots of day light, visual art spaces and live performance spaces take the hassle out of traveling. Highly engaging, seamlessly responsive and intelligently efficient, Guadalajara Airport’s new T2 connects people, places, things and communities — and connects us all to the future.
The design strives to make Guadalajara Terminal 2 one of the first net zero airports in the world. With research-backed, sustainable design strategies like solar energy harvest points and the roof’s integral mechanical cooling systems, designers plan to reduce the airport’s energy use by doing more with less to achieve net zero emissions."
