A trio of Architectural practices have joined forces to submit plans for what could become the world’s largest airport terminal, in Istanbul, Turkey.

The project will be masterminded by Arup and will cover a gross floor area of nearly one million square metres.

The building will make use of tall canopies to provide a more spacious area. The canopies diffuse natural daylight that enters through carefully positioned skylights to gently lift the interior environment.

Despite an enormous size the building retains a human scale, and includes an expansive central plaza and a traffic forecourt, which serves as a hub integrating rail, metro, bus and car transportation.

The collaborative project brings together the expertise of grimshaw architects, haptic architects and nordic office of architecture.
