Coming from its win at the 2019 International Architecture Awards (IAA) in July, the Mactan Cebu International Airport (MCIA) Terminal 2 has one more accolade under its belt. The terminal has won against the likes of Singapore’s Jewel Changi Terminal and the Istanbul Airport under the Completed Building Transport category at the World Architecture Festival in Amsterdam.

The terminal was conceptualized by design firm Integrated Design Associates (IDA) Hong Kong. Its architect Winston Shu worked with local furniture designer Kenneth Cobonpue and interior design firm Budji Royal in completing the world-class interiors we see today.

According to the judges from the competition, it was the terminal’s simplicity and loyalty to local resources that stood out. On the offical announcement page, it reads: “This is a simple and elegant new airport that uses many locally sourced materials. It is integrated into the development of a local hub and a landscape plan. The internal spaces are light and uncluttered and the design is capable of future extension. It is clearly popular with the local community and this established memorable travel experiences.”
