Zurich Airport

A design team of BIG + HOK won the competition to replace the aging Dock A at Zurich Airport. The new Dock A—including gates, airside retail, lounges, offices, the new air traffic control tower and an extension of the immigration hall—will be the next milestone in the airport’s expansion. Architect’s Newspaper, Airport Business, Passenger Terminal World and other outlets have covered the story.

Designing Outdoor Spaces at Airports

Airport World magazine published an article co-authored by HOK’s Matt Needham, director of A+T, on trends in designing outdoor spaces at airports. From spaces showcasing nearby mountain ranges to lush landscaping and outdoor terraces, the article referenced HOK’s designs at LaGuardia Airport as well as Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta, Salt Lake City and Tampa international airports.

Salt Lake City and Tampa international airports, both featuring terminals designed by HOK, recently ranked in the top ten of J.D. Power’s 2021 North America Airport Satisfaction Study.

Airport Improvement magazine also covered the SkyCenter One project at Tampa International Airport, which recently achieved LEED Platinum certification. The HOK-designed office building houses the airport operations center, emergency operations, a data center, airport staff and space for commercial leasing.
