Richard Rogers Partnership has revealed these latest images of Heathrow Terminal Five. The main 384m x 165m terminal building is crowned by a single wave form roof, supported by 11 pairs of giant steel arches. Each facade is predominantly glazed, allowing greater transparency through the building and clear views of the airfield and surrounding countryside. The design concept was to create a terminal 'characterised by open space, natural light, simplified passenger circulation and spectacular airfield views'.

The practice is principal architect on the £7.5 billion project, leading a multi-disciplinary design team that also includes Pascall + Watson Architects, Chapman Taylor, HOK, YRM Architects Planners Designers, Priestman Goode and Din Associates.The terminal is due to open to the public in the spring of 2008.
