Istanbul Airport has been shortlisted for a World Architecture News (WAN) Award in the Transport category, following a joint submission by Scott Brownrigg, Grimshaw, Nordic-Office of Architecture, Haptic Architects and Fonksiyon / TAM / Kiklop.
Now in its eleventh year, the WAN Awards accept entries from architecture practises from across the globe. It recognises the outstanding works of innovative, visionary and imaginative architects worldwide.
Istanbul Airport opened in April 2019. With a floor area of 1.4 million sq m and an initial capacity of 90 million passengers per year, it is the largest single terminal under one roof in the world and a heroic feat of design, engineering and construction.
As the Design Development Architect and Interior Concept Designer, Scott Brownrigg worked with a highly collaborative international team that included: Concept Architects Grimshaw, Nordic Office of Architecture and Haptic Architects; Delivery Architects Fonksiyon Mimarlik, Turgut Alton Mimarlik, and Kiklop Design & Engineering.
Inspired by the vibrant city of Istanbul, with a modern take on classic Turkish architecture, Istanbul Airport provides an iconic transport-hub for a world-class city, improving connectivity to Istanbul, Turkey and the rest of the world
Final judging takes place on Thursday 24 October in London just before the awards ceremony that evening.
