Earlier this week, five international design teams presented their designs for Amsterdam Airport Schiphol's new terminal, planned to open in 2023. The firms that qualified after a tender by Schiphol are:
- Kaan Architects in collaboration with Estudio Lamela and ABT,
- UNstudio together with HOK and Arup,
- MVRDV with KPF and Meinhardt,
- OMA together with WSP I Parsons Brinckerhoff,
- SOM together with ADPI.
The winning design will be announced in early September.
According to the press release, in the years ahead, Amsterdam Airport Schiphol will be expanding the airport considerably to include a new pier (2019) and a new terminal (2023). The expansion is required in order to strengthen the competitive position of Mainport Schiphol, keep pace with the growth in aviation and continue to develop the position of 'Europe's preferred airport' among both airlines and passengers.
The new terminal will form an expansion of Schiphol's existing terminal and will adjoin Departure and Arrival Halls 1, allowing for Schiphol to retain the one terminal concept, and ensure that all the facilities are under one roof.
