The concept for the project was to create a thick roof that is a volume rather than a surface. The roof is injected with program including a community center and conference room, and room sized apertures that bring lots of daylight to the tarmac down below. The terminal building itself merges into this roof and includes also a small restaurant, a coffee shop and convenience store. Adding this program, especially the community center, was an effort to redefine what a transit center of the future can be besides just being a transportation hub. The design emphasizes this idea of a civic plaza producing a new identity for the city and the roof becomes an iconic feature for the community.
