Sir Norman Foster and Partners is part of a consortium shortlisted to design an international airport in Pudong, Shanghai.

Pudong airport, set to be operating by 1999, will handle 20 million passengers a year by 2005 and is part of China’s programme to upgrade and build airports to cope with increased air traffic.

The three shortlisted consortia – Greiner Engineering of the US, Aéroport de Paris of France and Anglo-Dutch alliance Naco Foster – will hear the Shanghai government’s decision at the end of May.

“The interiors will be done in partnership with Naco,” says a spokesman for Sir Norman Foster and Partners, which does not have a design consultancy on board.
