O’Hare Global Terminal and Global Concourse

Chicago, Illinois

The new Global Terminal and Global Concourse is a critical project to unlock O’Hare’s potential as a leader in aviation and Chicago’s future success as a contemporary, global city.

Studio ORD’s design for the new O’Hare Global Terminal and Global Concourse celebrates Chicago’s history as a city shaped by lines of movement and extends that legacy for the 21st century. Like the confluence of the branching Chicago River, the design’s three volumes converge in a central hub that establishes a vibrant new neighborhood in the heart of O’Hare’s campus.

This massive project encompasses 2.2 million square feet of work on both the new concourse and the surrounding infrastructure.
