宁静的夜晚—浦东机场 A Quiet Night at Shanghai Pudong International Airport

wh  10-10-17 21:19

      在过去的近10年里,不知道有多少次出入过浦东机场,只有这次坐半夜的航班,感受与以往完全不同。在空空荡荡的机场候机大厅里来回走动,几乎看不到什么人。不过里里外外都是一派灯火通明的景象,也就不觉得有什么害怕的。机场静谧的气氛反倒让我觉得格外安定。
In the past ten years I have been to Shanghai Pudong International Airport for many times and felt nothing special about it. But this time I’ve had completely different feelings when I took a night flight. I walked back and forth in the empty departure lounge where I hardly saw a soul. But I wasn’t scared since the whole place was blazed with lights; on the contrary, the quietness of the airport greatly helped me to calm down.

      难得有这样的闲情逸致,好好观赏一下航站楼。据说这个超大型的建筑光是打桩就打了近7000根。屋顶上面用的是彩钢板,配着超大的梭型天窗,四周则用的是大幅的玻璃幕墙。记得第一走进浦东机场时,发现四周没有一根落地的庭柱,还问了句“这样的建筑安全吗”。后来才知道,建筑师们可是经过了多次实体荷载试验、结构震动试验、抗风试验等各种模拟试验,才确定了这样的“钢架支撑索网体系”幕墙结构方案。我的担心完全是多余的。这样的建筑既有通透的艺术效果,又能满足结构安全的需要,难怪能够夺得大奖呢。
Therefore, I decided to seize the opportunity to tour around the airport. It is said that about 7000 piles have been used to support this enormous building. The roof is made up of colorful steel plates with huge spindle-shaped skylights. Reflection glass is used as curtain walls. When I entered Pudong Airport for the first time, astonished to find there was not a single ground-to-ceiling column here, I even questioned the safety of the building. Later, I got to know that architects had undergone various simulation experiments, such as load tests, vibration tests and wind loading tests, and finally succeeded in the construction of the glass curtain wall with the support of steel frames and cable network. It turned out that my worries were totally unnecessary. The architecture of Pudong Airport not only achieves an artistic effect of transparency, but also meets the need of structural safety; and there is no wondering that it has taken a prize for its exceptional design.

 

 

     空荡荡的候机大厅偶尔会有机场服务人员通知登机的广播声,其余的时候则静得出奇。我走到玻璃幕墙边,透过外面的灯光能够看到停机坪上大大小小的飞机。夜已经深了,除非是有夜航任务,其余的飞机都在休息,养精蓄锐,等到下一个飞行任务来时,一飞冲天,展翅翱翔,带着旅客们飞往不同的梦想。
The spacious and empty departure lounge was very quiet except the resounding broadcast for reminding passengers to get on board. I looked through the glass curtain wall and saw planes of different sizes dotted over the immense parking apron. It was already late at night and these planes were resting temporarily. They were waiting for their next flight and ready for takin
