Airport World - Hiroyuki Kawakami and Makoto Ishii

Airport World talks to HOK’s Hiroyuki Kawakami and Azusa Sekkei’s Makoto Ishii about plans to transform and expand the international terminal at Fukuoka Airport in Japan.

Construction is underway on a “state-of-the-art international terminal expansion and renovation project”, which together with a new runway, will effectively equip Fukuoka Airport to handle up to 16 million passengers per annum by the end of 2025.

The airport selected Azusa Sekkei, HOK and West JEC to design the new-look international terminal, Azusa Sekkei and HOK being well known to it as they led the design team for the original terminal back in the 1990s.

The project will create an expanded commercial hall with new retail and F&B offerings; a refreshed departure hall, meeter/greeter space and bus terminal; and provide additional gates and security lanes in the international terminal.
