Corgan, in association with Chinese partner IPPR, said it has won the global design competition for the new Terminal South Satellite Concourse at Shanghai Pudong Airport (PVG).
This expansion is in support of the Shanghai Airport Authority (SAA) objective to be the premier international hub airport in Asia.
The project is planned for more than 100 boarding gates when completed, making it the largest satellite concourse in the world. PVG currently operates two terminals with 28 and 42 gates respectively, but the airport wants to keep pace with the growth of China´s largest city, which is also its financial capital. PVG aims to welcome 80m passengers and handle 4.7m tons of cargo annually by 2020 to make it Asia´s primary aviation hub.
