New terminal for Guwahati Airport goes up 

Construction has begun on a new integrated terminal building at Lokpriya Gopinath Bordoloi International Airport in India's northeastern city of Guwahati, in Assam. 

Design Forum International, one of 15 firms consulting on the project, said the new terminal will act as an "ode to the ancient yet reinvigorated spirit of Assam, the Seven Sisters, and our own Incredible India". 

Glass has been used around the facade, with terracotta tiles appearing throughout, referencing the architecture of forts and citadels of the area. The design for the terminal includes an indoor forest, featuring a 30m-high rainforest area travellers pass through before reaching the luggage carousels. The project is set to be complete by 2021.

The Baggage Claim hall wall in Guwahati Airport is an exercise in modularity with Origami aluminium panels that derive inspiration from the hilly terrain of the North-eastern states. Terrazzo flooring has been employed in the interiors for its versatility and playfulness, whilst the use of granite ensures steadiness. Aluminium origami panels endow relief and sintered stone is used for wall and column cladding.
