Foster + Partners, Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners (RSHP) and UNStudio have been shortlisted in a competition to expand the Taoyuan International Airport - Taiwan's largest airport, formally known as Chiang Kai-shek International Airport. Each team will now be given £126,000 to develop their proposals for a new 640,000-square-meter Terminal 3 building which, as the Architect's Journal reports, is expected to host 45 million passengers each year. 

The full shortlist includes: 

  • Project lead: CECI Engineering Consultants Taiwan (Taiwan) Joint Tenderers: Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners (United Kingdom), Ove Arup and Partners Hong Kong Limited (United Kingdom), Fei & Cheng Associates (Taiwan)
  • Project lead: Bio-Architecture Formosana (Taiwan) Joint Tenderers: Van Berkel en Bos U.N. Studio B.V.(Netherlands), April Yang Design Studio Limited (USA)
  • Project lead: Foster + Partners Limited (United Kingdom)

The new terminal will connect to the airport's existing Terminal 2. It is expected to open in 2020.
