The schematic design phase commences immediately after the publication of the results. The expansion will be built in phases with the preliminary date of completion set for 2021.

The new terminal at Azerbaijan’s Heydar Aliyev International Airport recently opened in the country’s capital of Baku. The landmark terminal features interior architecture and experiential design by the globally acclaimed, Istanbul-based Autoban studio.
Bearing all the hallmarks of the multidisciplinary studio’s experimental, genre-defying approach, the contemporary interiors overturn airport conventions of cavernous space and impersonal experience.

Carrasco International Airport, officially known as “Aeropuerto Internacional de Carrasco General Cesareo L. Berisso,” is located 11 miles (17.7 kilometers) east of downtown Montevideo, the capital city of Uruguay. With one million passengers per year, it is the only airport in the country that provides year-round international connections. As a result, it carries great symbolic value as the “front door” for many visitors to the country. With this distinction in mind, Puerta del Sur, the airport owner and operator, commissioned Rafael Viñoly Architects to expand and modernize the existing facilities with a spacious new passenger terminal to expand capacity and spur commercial growth and tourism in the region.

Trolleybus Central Terminus Studentski Trg.
Trolleybuses are electric vehicles which makes them more environmentally friendly than fossil fuel or hydrocarbon-based vehicles when implemented in the city. The power is not free as it has to be produced at centralised power plants, however, it is produced more efficiently making it more responsive to pollution control rather than individual vehicles exhausting noxious gases at street level. A trolleybus draws power from overhead wires using spring-loaded trolley poles made from wood and metal, which complete the electrical circuit by transferring electricity from a “live” overhead wire to the control and the electric traction motors of the trolley bus, a type of current collector.Each trolley pole, trolley bus elevation, tire and overhead wire will contain 3d printed piezoelectric cells generating electrical energy from pressure deformation in the semiconductors for on-board electronics. The city of Belgrade uses trolleybuses as one of it’s major modes of public transport with an extensive route stretching across the city and the suburbs.
