Wallpaper* Magazine Features Hamad International Airport as Most Architecturally Significant Terminal
Hamad International Airport Passenger Terminal Complex in Doha, Qatar, creates a lasting impression on guests through expressive architecture rooted in place.
“Doha’s International Airport is arguably the most architecturally significant terminal complex in the world, as well as being the most luxurious.”
“Gates are getting smaller due to more efficient systems; meaning relaxation spaces must be able to cope with an increased thoroughfare. With this in mind, HOK have created direction-led spaces for passengers to explore. Travelers are encouraged to look skywards through the acres of glass roof - the structure’s most notable feature. It is dramatic and undulating, creating a striking silhouette that reflects the nearby sand dunes.”
“HOK have ensured that beauty doesn’t sacrifice efficiency. The extensive 6.46 million-square-foot terminal is filled with well placed amenities: gold-plated coffee bars, prayer rooms, and a spa swimming pool, making this airport a destination in itself, as well as somewhere to pass through.”
