BIG to transform Jordan port terminal into solar-powered community hub



Danish architecture BIG has unveiled its masterplan for the refurbishment of the Aqaba Container Terminal at Jordan's only port to transform it into a hub for the local community.
The terminal masterplan will involve the renovation of existing facilities, alongside the introduction of community training centres and public parks.
BIG has unveiled its masterplan for the refurbishment of the Aqaba Container Terminal
The Aqaba Container Terminal project is being developed by BIG in collaboration with the port operating company APM Terminal for the shipping company Maersk.
According to BIG, its design will also focus on the provision of solar power, ensuring the masterplan aligns with APM Terminal's "ambition to optimize and decarbonize the port". The terminal at Jordan's only port will be powered by solar canopies
"Born out of APM Terminal's ambition to optimize and decarbonize the port and surrounding logistics, BIG has developed a spatial framework for the green transformation of Aqaba Container Terminal in Jordan," BIG explained.
"The framework envisions ports as once again becoming a center of urban life, that connects land and sea through growth and innovation."
