ADP Ingeniérie (ADPI) and Zaha Hadid Architects (ZHA) unveil the concept design for the world’s largest airport passenger terminal - the Beijing New Airport Terminal Building - in Daxing, Beijing…
Winning the 2011 international competition bid, in October 2014, the collaborative efforts of ADPI and ZHA offices have emerged with an optimized concept design for Beijing’s new airport building.
With Beijing’s existing Capital Airport already exceeding its planned capacity, the new airport proposes to serve the world’s fastest growing aviation sector and enable further connections between Beijing and cultural, economic and civic centres around the globe.
Set to accommodate approx. 45 million passengers per year, the new terminal will be adaptable and sustainable, operating in many different configurations dependant on varying aircraft and passenger traffic throughout each day. With an integrated multi-modal transport centre featuring direct links to local and national rail services including the Gaotie high speed rail, the new Daxing airport will be a key hub within Beijing’s growing transport network and a catalyst for the region’s economic development, including the city of Tianjin and Hebei Province.
The signature flourish of the ZHA design along with the principles originally developed during the competition phase by ADPI and the Zaha Hadid Consortium Group herald the new terminal at Daxing to be the world’s most convenient, sustainable and future-proof airport.
