Abstract:
All major roof elements of the terminal and ticketing buildings of the Metropolitan Oakland International Airport are precast shells. Two basic types were developed; hyperbolic paraboloids for the terminal building and conoidal shaped barrel vaults for the ticketing building. The design and construction of these shells is described. The airport will serve the eastern San Francisco Bay area.
