Haptic team wins Riga airport contest

London-based Haptic Architects, with Oslo architects Narud Stokke Wiig, have won the international contest to design the new airBaltic terminal in Riga, Latvia

The team, which bagged a €100,000 first prize, was chosen ahead of more than 125 entrants with its proposals for a ‘functional, efficient and comfortable terminal’.

Contestants were asked to draw up concepts for a terminal on a vacant plot at Riga airport with capacity for between 7 and 8 million passengers per year.

The competition jury included British architect Marcus Lee, now at Glenn Howells Architects, who worked on Terminal 5 at Heathrow Airport in London while at Richard Rogers + Partners.

The contest was managed on behalf of airBaltic by Graham Bolton of Ove Arup and Partners.
