Llewelyn Davies takes to the air in Mongolia

  • Comment
Llewelyn Davies has been chosen to design a new £40 million domestic airport in Huhhot, Inner Mongolia.

The 45,000m 2scheme will serve as an overspill terminal for Beijing's principal airport - just 45 minutes away by air - and will be completed in time for the 2008 Olympics.

Inspired by the 'outstretched wings of an eagle', the competition-winning design was prepared with engineer Arup.

Practice director Bert McCabe said: 'Llewelyn Davies has an extensive aviation portfolio, including five regional airports that we have completed in China. We, therefore, have a considerable amount of local expertise.'

Construction is due to commence in May of this year.
