11 Mar 2013

(MENAFN) Rotterdam-based OMA has been picked to design a huge development that will connect the new Hamad International Airport (HIA) with the capital Doha, Arabian Business reported.

The development, Airport City, will residence up to 200,000 across a 10 sq km site, and will take the form of a series of four visually striking, circular districts running along a spine adjacent to Hamad International’s runways.

The architectural firm, which is an international partnership that specializes in urban planning and cultural analysis, said that by the time Qatar hosts the FIFA World Cup in 2022, phase one of the development will be completed.

Partner-in-charge at OMA, Iyad Alsaka, said that Doha’s Airport City is an important extension to the realization of the company’s work in urbanism and will incorporate unprecedented transport planning opportunities.

It is worth mentioning that each zone will be connected with a “green spine” and will supply a new public space for Doha to serve both residents and tourists.
