Beijing New Airport and ADPI and Zaha Hadid Architects


The impressive design for the new Beijing airport coming from the world renowned Zaha Hadid Architects created in collaboration with ADPI – ADP Ingeniérie, the concept design was overviewed by the leadership of the Beijing New Airport Headquarters (BNAH).

Following the 2011 international competition bid, in October 2014 the Beijing New Airport Headquarters created a Joint Design Team bringing together ADPI and Zaha Hadid Architects with competition consortium group members Buro Happold, Mott MacDonald and EC Harris to collaborate on the optimised concept design for the Beijing New Airport Terminal Building. With Beijing’s existing Capital Airport already exceeding its planned capacity, the new airport will serve the world’s fastest growing aviation sector and enable further connections between Beijing and cultural, economic and civic centres around the globe. Initially accommodating 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. – from ZAHA HADID ARCHITECTS
