    In October, the Beijing New Airport Headquarters created a joint design team composed of Ingeniérie and Hadid studio, with competition consortium group members Buro Happold, Mott Macdonald and EC Harris. The joint design team scheme will integrate principles developed during the competition phase. Initially accommodating 45 million passengers a year, the new terminal in Daxing will be adaptable and sustainable, operating in different configurations dependant on aircraft and passenger traffic. With Beijing’s existing Capital Airport already exceeding its planned capacity, the new airport will serve the world’s fastest growing aviation sector and enable further connections between Beijing and the rest of the world.
