Expressions of interest (EOI) are now open to find the architecture firm to design the terminal at Western Sydney Airport, marking the first stage of a highly competitive process.
Firms submitting an EOI are encouraged to demonstrate how they intend to include university students – with a link to Western Sydney – on the design team.
Federal Minister for Cities, Urban Infrastructure and Population, Alan Tudge, said it was an incredible opportunity for up and coming architects or designers who live or study in Western Sydney to make their mark on the iconic project.
“Designing an airport terminal takes experience and knowledge; however, we want local design students to be involved in delivering an iconic building,” he said.
“Whether it’s planning a specific part of the terminal or designing an aspect of the interior – there are endless possibilities.”
To be considered for the design project, interested firms must have experience designing an airport of similar size and complexity to Western Sydney Airport in the past five years.
Federal Finance Minister, Mathias Cormann, said the design will be focused on making sure that passengers and employees have the best possible experience.
