Intended to take in 45 million passengers a year initially, Beijing new air terminal – designed by Zaha Hadid Architects in collaboration with ADP Ingeniérie, specialists in airport projects – will go up in Daxing District, following Foster + Partners’ 2008 expansion in Chaoyang District, which has already exceeded its planned capacity. The idea is to build the largest passenger terminal in the world. In 2011, ADPI won the bid to build new facilities for the Chinese capital’s international airport, and to develop its proposal it teamed up with the Zadid Consortium Group, which includes Pascall + Watxon, Buro Happold, Muro MacDonald, and EC Harris. A flexible design allowing different configurations incorporates an intermodal transport station connected to the national and local railway network.
