II. Working Range and Competition Content
2.1 Competition Design Scope
The competition design scope includes two levels which are the detailed underground space plan scope and the key area design scope.
Detailed underground space plan scope: The study area is within Guangzhou Aerotropolis Development District, about 116 square kilometers. The planning area is about 12.67 square kilometers, locating in the port front area of Baiyun International Airport, reaching the planned flight area of the fifth runway in the east, Airport Avenue in the south, Airport South 7th Road in the west and T2 terminal in the north.
