Istanbul Grand Airport
Haptic, in collaboration with Grimshaw, Nordic Office of Architecture and Arup is developing the 8,000 hectare Istanbul Grand Airport masterplan and terminals in Turkey. Located on the Black Sea coast, some 35km outside of Istanbul, the ambitious six-runway development will be delivered in four phases.
The first phase will open in 2019 and aims to serve 90 million passengers per year. This will increase to over 150 million passengers per year when the last phase is completed. The new Istanbul Airport will be the world’s largest airport terminal, with a gross floor area close to one million square metres for the first terminal.
