Posted 2 September 2016 · Add Comment

Istanbul New Airport, which upon completion will become the world's largest 'greenfield' airport, has won International Architecture Award 2016, granted by Chicago Athe

CEO of İGA Airports Construction, Yusuf Akçayoğlu said: “We are very pleased to see Istanbul New Airport’s Air Traffic Control Tower receive the highly prestigious International Architecture Award 2016. The tower’s design, evocative of aerodynamic shapes, has been inspired by the tulip, which is among the symbols of Turkey’s history and Istanbul’s rich cultural legacy. The tower will be seen by all passengers traveling between Europe and Asia via Istanbul New Airport. In new-generation airports, air traffic control towers have begun to stand out not only with their functionality but also architectural design and symbolism. Many such examples may be seen in the USA, Gulf countries, and Europe. As the company constructing the world’s largest airport, we wanted to go the extra mile. Following a contest participated in by the world’s most prominent architects, we decided to entrust the design of our tower to Pininfarina, the world’s best-known design firm, which works with Ferrari as well. This award has confirmed the correctness of our decision. I am fully confident that the Air Traffic Control Tower will continue to garner more design awards in various fields.”
