Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport Terminal 2, the new air hub designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM) was inaugurated last week.
Located in the heart of India´s financial capital, the new hub adds 4.4m square feet of space to accommodate 40 million passengers per year operating 24 hours a day. By orchestrating the complex web of passengers and planes into a design that feels intuitive and responds to the region´s rocketing growth, the new Terminal 2 asserts the airport´s place as a preeminent gateway to India and underscores the country´s status as an international economic power.
