Foster + Partners has won a competition to design the Polish airport Centralny Port Komunikacyjny (CPK).
Construction on the 3,000-hectare site between Warsaw and Łódź is expected to start next year, with completion scheduled for 2028. By then, CPK will replace the current Chopin as the Polish capital’s central airport. Plans include a terminal building that will accommodate air, rail and road connections and will be full of green space and natural light. The concept also provides for future expansion of the airport and transport hub. Foster’s head of studio Grant Brooker says the project will “create a model for the future of totally integrated transportation design” and “will completely revolutionize travel across the country and beyond.”
