Named Airports Council International’s “Best Airport Worldwide” for seven years running, Incheon is a gateway to Korea and an aviation connection between Asia and the world. In mid-2011, nine international design teams competed to design a second, 72-gate terminal that doubles the airport’s size. Gensler, as the collaborating design architect with the HMGY (Heerim-Mooyoung-Gensler-Yungdo) Consortium, won the competition with an elegant, yet practical terminal concept notable for its extensive sustainable design features. The airport’s expansion includes a second control tower, train station, parking facilities, and an integral hotel and conference center. Slated for 2017 completion, Terminal 2 will incorporate advanced technologies that set new performance benchmarks for the celebrated airport.
