By: | February 9th, 2015

The Beijing New Airport Terminal Building from ADP Ingeniérie (ADPI) and Zaha Hadid Architects (ZHA) is set to become the world’s largest airport passenger terminal. Zaha Hadid’s creation will replace Beijing’s existing Capital Airport, which is currently operating beyond its capacity.

Zaha Hadid Architects has unveiled a few images of the designs for the new airport terminal which can be seen below:

ZHA said in a press release, “Initially accommodating 45 million passengers per year, the new terminal will be adaptable and sustainable, operating in many different configurations dependent 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.”
