handle 90 million travelers, the largest in terms of annual passenger capacity.
Paolo Pininfarina, Chairman, Pininfarina Group, said, “By leveraging the unique combination of our 85 years of design experience, we have been able to create a technologically advanced structure of distinctive character.”
The aim of the project was to create a contemporary and strong technological component, a work that converges art and functionality. And, the ATC tower does just that. The structure is equipped with lounge areas, outdoor terraces, sports arena, conference halls and an education center with classrooms, language and electronics laboratories for the staff.
The design of the tower takes into account the strong climatic changes in Istanbul and hence focuses on sustainability. High-efficiency glass has been used to maintain efficient insulation. The tower supplies hot water through solar collectors and generates electricity on site using photovoltaic panels. Also, a rainwater collection system has been developed to reduce the building's water footprint.
