Zaha Hadid Architects (ZHA) and ADP Ingeniérie (ADPI) have unveiled the latest design concepts for the world’s largest passenger terminal at Beijing New International Airport in Daxing, China.
The building has been designed to accommodate an initial 45 million passengers per year and will be adaptable to operate in several different configurations depending on the airport’s requirements. Beijing New Airport will be a key hub within the region’s growing transport network and will feature an integrated multi-modal transport center with direct links to local and national rail services including the Gaotie high-speed rail.
In order to complete the concept, the Beijing New Airport Headquarters (BNAH) created a joint design team that included ADPI and ZHA, as well as competition consortium group members Buro Happold, Mott Macdonald and EC Harris. BNAH is now supervising the project which is being led into the next stages of development by the Local Design Institute (LDI).
