Sustainable features of Delhi Noida International Airport will include green spaces in the forecourt, indoor trees and an indoor landscaped courtyard
Spotted: Located in Jewar, 25 miles south of Delhi, the Delhi Noida International Airport has been designed by a team comprised of architecture firms Nordic Office of Architecture, Grimshaw and Haptic and consultants STUP. The group beat out a team consisting of Gensler and Arup, and SOM and Mott McDonalds on their design of an Indian airport that aims to be entirely carbon net-zero and hold a LEED Gold standard certification.
Other sustainable features of the airport include green spaces in the airport forecourt, indoor trees and an indoor landscaped courtyard, with the natural light and ventilation properties aiming to add to the ‘green’ atmosphere.
Nordic’s founding partner, Gudmund Stokke, says that the “Delhi Noida International Airport will become […] a truly modern, innovative and green airport, based in a region of strong historic and cultural tradition.”
Other projects planned by the team include a “sustainable city of the future”, to be built next door to the terminal.
