New International Terminal Building, San Francisco International Airport

San Francisco, CA

As a joint venture architect, MWA was part of a blended team working on all aspects of design from planning through construction administration.

Heavily involved in early design, we worked closely with majority joint venture partner Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, but made significant contributions to construction documentation and construction administration as well. A soaring, 80-foot-high arched roof that spans the 700-foot-long departure hall is the prime architectural feature of the new terminal which is the centerpiece of a $2.4 billion expansion effort. An immense undertaking, the building required close coordination of a multitude of complex systems.
