Philippines’ airport in Cebu wins World Architecture award

The Philippines’ Mactan Cebu International Airport (MCIA) Terminal 2 has won an award at the World Architecture Festival in Amsterdam, The Netherlands on December 4-6.

The World Architecture Festival is where the world architecture community meets to celebrate, learn, exchange and be inspired. It is the only architecture event where keynote talks from the industry’s most influential figures sit alongside live crit presentations from 534 award finalists, global networking and an international product exhibition.

MCIA won the festival’s Completed Buildings-Transport category, edging out Singapore’s Jewel Changi Airport, Hong Kong West Kowloon Station, Sydney Australia’s Barangaroo Ferry Wharf, and several other structures, ABS-CBN News reported.

“The architecture of Terminal 2 was designed by multi-awarded firm Integrated Design Associates (IDA) Hong Kong and its Principal Architect, Winston Shu, in collaboration with world-class Filipino designers,” MCIA said. 

Philippine Airlines flies direct to Cebu from Bangkok thrice a week.
