Tehran Airport T-2 project, designed by Istanbul based architectural practice GMW MIMARLIK takes a simple, linear and dynamic form

GMW MIMARLIK, under the leadership of Ali Evrenay Ozveren, Dicle Demircioglu and Pinar Ilki Emekci, has been responsible for high profile major transportation projects around the world including several international airport terminals and train stations. One of their recent commissions was for the design of the Tehran International Airport T - 2.

The proposed 175,000 sq m terminal is designed to serve a total of 26.5m international and domestic passengers, and the existing terminal will be given over exclusively to pilgrim traffic.

Operational flexibility and efficiency, a high level of passenger comfort, and adaptability to future needs are at the heart of GMW MIMARLIK concept design. The simple and yet dynamic form of the proposed terminal with a strong visual identity clearly expresses the three main functions of an international terminal; the main processing space for the passengers, commercial areas and the airside lounges. The linear arrangement of spaces within the pier provide flexible use of a total number of 28 gates.

The WAN Awards Future Projects category is now open until 30th June.
