Nacala is a city located in Mozambique, Africa. It is positioned in an important international air route, but despite that, it lacks of an airport. The closest airfield was located at two hours of distance, which made difficult to meet the local demand, driven by intense port activities.

Within such context rises the need for developing a project for Nacala International Airport. The building proposed by Fernandes is basically one-story and encompasses the airport operational facilities and those aimed to passenger service, such as check-in area and boarding and disembarking rooms, located in the north and south wings.

The entire passenger flow occurs always from the center towards ends (‘wings’), both in the entrance and exit. The connection between the two wings is made through the central lobby, also comprised by the mezzanine. They are sheltered by a wide coverage, which connects the several volumes.

In addition to the Passenger Terminal, the airport complex is comprised by one Cargo Terminal, Control Tower, Maintenance and Runway Equipment buildings and Fire Department (Corpo de Bombeiros) building. It is a milestone for the city and the country, not only for its strategic value, but also for its transforming and renewing role, in a development country, where virtually there are not many large buildings being constructed.
