Zaha Hadid Architects has won a competition to design a major new international airport for Mumbai, India.

The London-based architecture firm are charged with creating a new airport terminal and air-traffic-control tower for the city, which is the largest in India.

Proposed for the township of Navi Mumbai, the airport was commissioned because Mumbai's existing Chhatrapati Shivaji International (CSI) Airport, the second largest in the country, is operating near maximum capacity.

The new airport will have an annual capacity of 60 million.

Indian conglomerate GVK, which operates CSI, joined forces with the Mumbai government's City and Industrial Development Corporation to drive forward the project.
