MANILA - 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 conceptualize the terminal, which has timber arches and floor-to-ceiling glass panels.

MANILA - The Mactan Cebu International Airport edged out Singapore’s Changi for an international award in architecture because it was “very confident, yet very modest,” according to its designer.

Mactan Airport Terminal 2, with its timber arches, won in the World Architecture Award’s “Completed Buildings-Transport” category, beating Jewel Changi with the world's tallest indoor waterfall.

The gateway to white sand beaches, waterfalls, adventure trails and shopping in Cebu, Mactan Terminal 2 features wooden arches that look like an inverted boat hull, and a wave-shaped roof that evokes a tropical resort feel.

Winston Shu, principal architect of International Design Associates (IDA), said the jury gave the award to the MCIA because “the design has a certain maturity, which means you know what you’re doing, and yet you’re not showing off.”

Shu said the Jewel, which reportedly had a price tag of $1.25 billion, was "a very grand building" and that the effort needed to build it was "phenomenal."

But Shu said the judges were also looking for "economy in manufacturing" where a designer could achieve a similar result with fewer resources.
