HOK's Matt Breidenthal and Ripley Rasmus share design and construction details behind the iconic new canopies at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. Lessons learned from the canopies offer guidance to other airports looking to modernize and improve the passenger experience.

Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport is in the midst of 20-year, multi-billion-dollar modernization program to improve operations and passenger experience at the world’s busiest airport. The most visible component of the modernization is the installation of two HOK-designed canopies covering the drop-off and pick-up areas at the domestic terminal.

This publication, originally published in the Journal of Airport Management, examines the design evolution of those canopies and provides insights into how airports can add iconic architectural elements while utilizing existing terminal infrastructure. Installing the massive, 864-foot-long canopies over eight lanes of active roadway offers additional lessons in construction planning, traffic management, safety and signage during major modernizations and renovations.
