Kohn Pedersen Fox (KPF) and Heatherwick Studio are pleased to announce their selection by Changi Airport Group, the manager and operator of Singapore Changi Airport, as the design leaders of the airport’s new Terminal 5.
Working as design partners, KPF and Heatherwick Studio, with Architects 61 will be joined by a team of design consultants, including James Corner Field Operations, The Fountain Workshop, Speirs + Major, Lichtvision Design, and Bruce Mau Design with Entro. Arup, Motts McDonald, and Surbana Jurong will serve as leaders of the engineering team.
Changi Airport Terminal 5 will add an initial capacity of up to 50 million passengers per year to what is already one of the busiest and most celebrated international airports in the world. The magnitude of the project not only requires a design vision on a city-like scale, but also offers the opportunity to transform conventional thinking in airport design.
