Pittsburgh International Airport Terminal Modernization Program

The $1.1 billion Terminal Modernization Program at Pittsburgh International Airport is slated to open in 2023. The OJB team developed a new vision for the Pittsburgh International Airport that celebrates the natural beauty of the Allegheny foothills while promoting a cohesive and efficient passenger experience.

The new arrival to the airport begins with a carefully planted forecourt and reconfigured vehicular drop off. Organic forest-like tree arrangements and natural exposed rock striations typically found within the Appalachian basin, along with native flora, rolling topography and water systems, reference the diverse ecology of the region. A new headhouse, with an undulating roofscape punctuated with skylights, invites passengers into the terminal. 

The terraces and courtyards accommodate expanded retail and F&B spaces, and also include flexible open areas to support a wide range of events and activities. A distinct feature of these spaces is that they all open to the outside, allowing for year-round use. 

By thoughtfully connecting interior and exterior spaces to the surrounding landscape throughout the airport, the beauty and character of the Pittsburgh area and Allegheny Hills region is prominently on display.  The revitalized airport is a key strategy of the current economic renaissance taking place in the Pittsburgh region.
