Zaha Hadid Architects to design Navi Mumbai Airport in India

Navi Mumbai International Airport (NMIAL) has appointed Zaha Hadid Architects (ZHA) to design the Terminal 1 and air traffic control (ATC) tower of Navi Mumbai International Airport in India.

The London-based architect firm was selected following a 12-week fast-track design competition among leading international architecture firms. The Navi Mumbai contract will be its first major project in the Indian sub-continent.
Under the terms of the contract, ZHA will be responsible for the design and build of the new NMIA terminal building, an ATC tower, and associated landside access.

ZHA project director Cristiano Ceccato said: “We are very proud to have been awarded the Navi Mumbai International Airport that will be a much-needed addition to Mumbai’s infrastructure and an additional gateway to India.”

The NMIAPPP venture comprises GVK-led Mumbai International Airport (MIAL) and Maharashtra government agency CIDCO, which have a 74% and 26% interest respectively.

GVK founder and chairman and NMIAL chairman GVK Reddy said: “Our vision is to establish one more landmark airport that would exceed the benchmarks that GVK had set through MIAL whilst creating Terminal 2 at Mumbai Airport.”
