Airport Leipzig-Halle, Germany (currently under construction)

Simulation: Georg Mischler
Architect: AP-Brunnert Plan GmbH
The images on this page have been made to verify numerical simulations of the main check in hall (similarly for other areas of the building). Consequently, they only show a highly simplified geometry. They still give a very good impression of the effects of the lighting situation for day and night.
The daylight enters through many bands of glass around the edges of the roof segments. This allows for high illuminance levels throughout the space. The ceiling itself is relatively dark.
In the night, the ceiling segments are lighted up by floodlights hidden on top of the air supply "mushrooms" and at the lower edge of the window atop the check-in counters. The brightness distribution in the space is completely reversed in comparison to the daylight situation.
