Zaha Hadid Architects exhibiting at Passenger Terminal Expo

Zaha Hadid Architects (ZHA) are exhibiting at Passenger Terminal Expo, Excel London, until 28 March 2019.

ZHA adopts an integrated, multidisciplinary design approach to deliver airport terminals around the world that perform with efficiency, sustainability and resilience; seamlessly combining architectural design and engineering functionality.

Opening on 1 October this year, Beijing’s new airport will serve the world’s fastest growing aviation sector. Accommodating 72 million passengers per year by 2025 (630,000 flights/year on 4 runways), the airport is designed for further expansion to accommodate 100 million passengers and 4 million tonnes of cargo annually.

The 780,000m² new terminal with rail transportation centre is designed to be extremely user-focussed, efficient and adaptable for future growth; its 6-pier radial design gives exceptional convenience for passengers and flexibility in operations.

The terminal’s compact design minimises distances between check-in and gate, as well as minimising distances between gates for transferring passengers. Every aircraft pier radiates from the terminal’s main central court where all passenger services & amenities are located.

Flowing parabolic folds within the terminal’s vaulted roof reach to the ground to support the structure and allow natural light within, directing all passengers to the central courtyard.
