FR-EE Fernando Romero and Foster + Partners to design new international airport for Mexico City
President Peña Nieto announced the team of FR-EE + Foster as winners of a nearly six-month competition process to design Mexico City’s new 470,000 m2 airport terminal. Inspired by the country’s rich history, the shape, symbolism and monumentality of the building are all drawn from Mexican art and architecture. The terminal is designed to achieve LEED Platinum certitifcation, making it the most sustainable airport in the world. It is expected to open in 2018.
