OMA has been announced as master-planners for 'Airport City,' a new 10 sqkm development where 200,000 people will live and work, connecting the new Hamad International Airport with the city. Located adjacent to Doha -- the capital of Qatar, the masterplan will consist of a series of four circular districts along a spine parallel to the HIA runways -- intended to create a strong visual identity and districts with unique identities. Phase one of the 30-year masterplan will link air-side and land-side developments for business, logistics, retail, hotels, and residences -- which will aim to be complete in time for the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
