Zaha Hadid Architects and Cox Architecture have unveiled the design and style of an airport in Sydney that is modelled on standard Australian architecture and all-natural landscapes.
Western Sydney International (Nancy-Bird Walton) Airport, named immediately after a renowned Australian pilot, has been created by Zaha Hadid Architects and Cox Architecture for a rural 1,780-hectare website in the city’s new Western Parkland City area.
It is hoped to help the planned expansion of west Sydney more than the coming decades, and is anticipated to turn out to be “the biggest international gateway to Australia by 2060”.
Visually, Western Sydney International (Nancy-Bird Walton) Airport will be created by Zaha Hadid Architects and Cox Architecture to have “an unmistakable regional identity”.
This involves an overhanging flat roof that evokes verandas identified in standard Australian architecture, as effectively as landscaping and undulating wooden ceilings inside that nod to the surrounding Australian bushland.
“We are honoured to have been chosen for this awesome project. The design and style is an evolution of Australian architecture previous, present and future,” stated Cristiano Ceccato, project director at Zaha Hadid Architects.
“It draws inspiration from each standard architectural capabilities such as the veranda, as effectively as the all-natural beauty of the surrounding bushland.”

The design and style was chosen ahead of a shortlisted teams such as Foster + Partners, Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners and Gensler.
It is anticipated to be constructed in 4 stages, the initial of which will be completed by 2026 and will be capable of handling 10 million passengers a year.
Although becoming “sensitive to its regional context”, the two studio’s proposal was also chosen for its ambition to be power-effective.
This will consist of creating the design and style to maximise all-natural light, ventilation and water recycling.
