Copenhagen Airport Terminal

VLA won the invited competition for erection of a new control tower. With a height of 72 meters, the tower is experienced as a striking point of reference on the flat island of Amager.

The project comprises 3 main elements: The base building, the 21-storey high tower and the uppermost cab from which the traffic control function is conducted.

The tower is formed by a cross-section of a modified triangle where the broad side faces the airstrips and the small side faces Dragør.

The tower’s shaft is cast in concrete with a sliding form construction; cap and other functions are made of steel and clad with glass.
