Waste Treatment Center
(won the 'excellence in building' 2008 Israel)
Ben Gurion International Airport
The building began operating early on 2009 as part of the airport's new environmental approach towards the recycling and treatment of solid & liquid waste. The waste treatment center is designed as a literal translation of it's program – a bridge leads the waste truck to the upper floor where the plan dimensions allow it to turn around and pour the it's contents, via a hole in the floor, into containers that crush the waste on the lower floor.
After the waste is reduced to minimal dimensions it is ready for removal to dump sites.
