Chicago's international airport is set to undergo an $8.5 million expansion.

According to design magazine, DeZeen, a design proposal submitted by a team of architecture firms called Studio ORD has been selected as the blueprint for a new Terminal in Chicago's O'Hare Airport.

This will be called 'O'Hare Global Terminal and Global Concourse.'

The design features a 'Y' shaped terminal representing the two branches of the Chicago River. It will cover 2.25 million square feet.

The terminal's central hub will contain green spaces, restaurants, and a retail area with a high ceiling supported by 'Y' shaped beams spaced roughly 100 feet from each other.

The hub's roof is decorated with a large skylight in the shape of a 6 point star, referencing the Chicago flag.

The gates and plane hangars will be built on the sides of the terminal. The central section will contain the ticketing, immigration, and baggage retrieval areas for departing passengers.

Construction is set to begin in 2023.
