New Stefano Boeri Airport in Shanghai, China


Renowned Italian studio SBA by Stefano Boeri has been commissioned a project for the interior design and renovation of the Pudong Airport in Shanghai, China.

In this airport you will relax in a nature-filled lounge while breathing fresh, clean air instead of being taken hostage by stress, pollution and rushing. The new lounge for the Pudong Airport in Shanghai will be an incredible jungle-like environment.

The project involves two of the airport terminals, creating in Terminal 1 a so called Sky Jungle, a space dense of nature inside a commonly artificial and mineral environment filled with a mix of trees, flowers and bushes.

There also will be integrations with technical devices that regulate the fluxes of travellers, so that the Sky Jungle could work as an air cleansing device in which multiple activities happen.
