Haptic Architects, in collaboration with Nordic, Grimshaw and STUP, were selected by Zurich Airport International as the winning design for the new international airport at Jewar, India.
The design merges Swiss efficiency and Indian hospitality, as it provides a seamless passenger experience and sets new benchmarks in sustainability for airport terminal buildings in India.
The DNIA aspires to serve 30 million passengers per year as a local and regional hub while meeting passengers’ international standards. Green spaces inside and around the building represent a new paradigm of a future airport city and offer flexible expansion options allowing the DNIA to grow in the future.
Once complete, Delhi Noida International Airport will serve the fast-developing industrial region between Delhi and Agra, and its investment will support the Governments of India and Uttar Pradesh through infrastructure development and job creation.
In a country that is already pushing the boundaries for sustainable aviation infrastructure, the project aspires to achieve LEED Gold standard and to operate at Carbon Net Zero. Design proposals include an internal landscaped courtyard deep within the terminal plan delivering ventilation, daylight, and an enhanced passenger experience. Externally, a new landscaped forecourt will create a regional destination for the public, staff and passengers with an unforgettable sense of place.
