The Philippines’ Mactan Cebu International Airport (MCIA) Terminal 2 has won an award at the World Architecture Festival, beating transport stations in other countries.

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. “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. World-famous Cebuano furniture-maker Kenneth Cobonpue helped conceptualise the terminal, which has timber arches and floor-to-ceiling glass panels.
