The design will draw inspiration from Icarus, the epitome of the human urge to fly, and traditional Japanese art of Origami.

The terminal will have a craft village, an indoor forest, craft walls, tea gardens and terracotta flooring.

The Guwahati airport is all geared to get a new and integrated terminal building which is to be designed by Design Forum International, an award-winning architectural consultancy firm.

The design will draw inspiration from Icarus, the epitome of the human urge to fly, and traditional Japanese art of paper folding, Origami.

 

Spread over 50 acres, the focus will be on sustainability and equip passengers with world-class facilities. The building will conform to GRIHA 4-star rating. 

The design is infused with the flavors of Assam, the land which is asam (undulating).

Air travel can be quite taxing – emotionally as well as physically. The design solution emerges out of the intent to soothe frayed nerves and tired bodies, and to create an environment that evokes memories, stirs wonder, and rekindles pride and a sense of belonging.

There will be a majestic centerpiece that looms over the departure concourse, its arms outstretched as it reaches out to the skies. The floating form doubles up as the canopy for the drop-off zone.

 

The terminal will have a craft village, an indoor forest, craft walls, tea gardens and terracotta flooring.

The New Integrated Terminal Building at Guwahati International Airport is slated to be an ode to the ancient yet reinvigorated spirit of Assam, the Seven Sisters, and Incredible India.

It is the collective dream and effort of a team of fifteen consulting and design firms, including Aecom, Design Forum International, Integral Designs, Axis Facades, Gaurav Jindal, Alpana Khare Designs and CBRE.
