Article source: Groupe3architectes

The new Guelmim airport is integrated in an existing military infrastructure located 3km north of the city. The stakes of the project were simplicity, efficiency, environmental control and extensibility, which is a prerequisite for the durability of an airport. It is with this objective that the construction of the building was designed in 2 phases, resulting in a linear design parallel to the runways.

Article source: UNStudio

The UNStudio designed Kutaisi International Airport was recently voted one of the 13 most beautiful airports in the world by ‘Curbed magazine’ (May 2017).

Just four and a half years after its official opening (September 2012), the airport has grown rapidly from 12,915 passengers per year to more than 300,000 in 2016. Predictions for the low-cost airliner airport are such that it is expected to reach a capacity of close to 1,000,000 passengers by 2020. In order to facilitate this predicted growth UNStudio has now been invited to design a large extension to the existing terminal.
