Best future mega project

The shortlist for this year’s prestigious MIPIM Awards has been released, and among the shortlisted ‘Best future mega projects’ is Istanbul New Airport.

The design is by Nordic, Grimshaw Architects and Haptic Architects. Scott Brownrigg Architects is the current lead architect for design implementation.

‘Mega-project’ is no exaggeration. When complete, Istanbul New Airport will have the single largest airport terminal building in the world with an initial capacity of 90 million passengers per year.
During the first days of the MIPIM real estate event in Cannes, delegates are invited to vote for their favourite projects in 11 different categories. The delegates’ votes and the jury’s recommendation will count 50/50 in deciding the category winners, who will be revealed at the MIPIM Awards Ceremony on the 17th of March.
