  • Denver's new greenfield airport was designed as a master plan with expansion capabilities for 100 million passengers, 12 runways and 300 attached gates.

    The initial design phase aimed to accommodate 35 million passengers a year when the $4.5 billion international airport opened in 1995.

    Denver International Airport is located on a site of 53 square miles, northeast of downtown Denver, an area greater than any other airport site in the world. Approximately 110 million cubic yards of earth were moved to grade the construction site of the airport. The only contemporary rival in terms of construction scope is the English Channel tunnel.

    This monograph examines in detail the design and construction of the airport's unique passenger terminal by Denver-based Fentress Bradburn Architects - a full-service architectural firm which has also designed major airport terminals around the world.
