Architecture firm behind Abu Dhabi International Airport wins the bid to design Singapore’s new Terminal 5
After a two-year-long global hunt and a tough worldwide competition, American firm Kohn Pedersen Fox (KPF), which has offices around the world, including Abu Dhabi, has won the contract to design Singapore’s coveted Terminal 5.
KPF is currently working on the Midfield Terminal in Abu Dhabi International Airport (pictured above), with other notable international projects in the portfolio such as Shanghai International Financial Centre. The firm won the bid in partnership with Heatherwick Studio, Architects 61, Lead 8 and James Corner Field Operations.
The massive terminal is expected to be completed in 2030, increasing Changi Airport’s capacity to 150 million annually, from its current 90 million travellers. Last year, Benoy and SAA Architects completed the Terminal 4 (pictured above) project.
