The design for Pittsburgh International Airport’s new terminal has been approved by the Allegheny County Airport Authority Board of Directors. The terminal is expected to open in 2023 and is the work of luis vidal + architects together with architectural and engineering firms Gensler and HDR. The design combines ideas of nature, technology and community.

“This new terminal, inspired by the beauty, tech renaissance and people of our region will integrate seamlessly into the great design of the existing Airside Terminal,” said Christina Cassotis, CEO of the Airport Authority. “In considering this design, we looked at function first, then form, to construct a building that will be both iconic, practical and affordable and that can be easily adapted as the technology and transportation needs of our community change.”
