Changi Airport Terminal 4 Wins President’s Design Award 2018 Design of the Year
Changi Airport Terminal 4 (T4) was honoured with the President’s Design Award 2018 Design of the Year at a ceremony held at the Istana last night.
In operation for less than a year, T4 was designed to be a test bed of new technology and has so far been successful; implementing the Fast and Seamless Travel (FAST) system that enables passengers to check themselves and their baggage in via an automated system. T4 was also the first airport in Singapore to incorporate a centralised security screen area with automated features including facial recognition, providing passengers with a seamless and stress-free experience. The spatial planning, immersive entertainments and self-service programmes have paved a new way for airport experience; and passengers will get a pleasant surprise when processing time is shorter than they expected, turning to each other to say “Oh, you mean it’s done?”.
The subtleties in T4’s design consideration, from architectural, technological to even shopping experience have created an unforgettable experience that makes the environment much more pleasant for them and for the airport staff. As a national gateway, it aims to make the airport, however brief, a pleasurable experience that leaves a positive impression of Singapore. Designed to be more than a transit hub, the Changi Experience is a lifestyle destination on its own – one that will continue to be fun, vibrant, and positively surprising.
