Back to back architecture, design awards for Cebu airport

Mactan-Cebu International Airport was recently recognized by two international awards-giving bodies in architecture for the design of Terminal 2, its international terminal.

Back to back architecture, design awards for Cebu airport

Terminal 2 was designed by renowned architectural firm Integrated Design Associates Hong Kong.

Terminal 2 opened in July last year. Terminal 2’s most iconic feature is its undulating roof structure made entirely of glued-laminated timber, or glulam, from Austria.

Last year, MCIA bagged three awards, one of which was Asia Pacific Medium Airport of the Year during the CAPA Aviation Awards for Excellence ceremony. MCIA Terminal 2 was one of the winners in the 2019 International Architecture Awards in the Airports and Transportation Centers category.

Two international airports made this year’s cut, with MCIA Terminal 2 sharing the stage with the Incheon International Airport Terminal 2 expansion.

Terminal 2 was also shortlisted for the upcoming World Architecture Festival in Amsterdam.  MCIA Terminal 2 will compete with Jewel Changi Airport and the Istanbul Airport during the festival this December.
