  • Sector  Transport
  • Size  250,000 m²

This unique design was the winner of a bid organised by Infraero – Empresa Brasileira de Infraestrutura Aeroportuaria and will strength São Paulo’s status as a key South American hub and link to the wider world.

The striking design of Terminal 3 – made to resemble an airplane – comes from more than a desire to symbolically connect the building to its function but a requirement of the tender that the terminal be T shaped. This format led the RMJM Brazil team to create a one-off design that allows for functionality and beauty. The terminal shaped like an airplane has the potential to become an iconic São Paulo building.
