Re-imagining O'Hare


Calling it a “once in a lifetime opportunity” to re-imagine O’Hare International Airport (ORD), Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel has launched a global search for architects to design the biggest expansion in the airport’s history.

More than any other city, Chicago is known for its innovative architecture. And, since we make no little plans, the City is hosting a competition among some of the world’s best designers and using public feedback to deliver one of the most cutting-edge terminals in the nation. Check out the designs and tell us your preferences today!

Your City. Your Airport. Your Vote.

This public feedback period is a unique opportunity to voice your opinions on the new ORD and to help shape Chicago’s aviation future. You can view the designs on architect's vision or in person. You have until January 23 to vote!
