11 to GMW ARCHITECTURE. Bronze Medal at the International Design Awards…


GMW ARCHITECTURE won the bronze medal in the "Arches, Bridges, Viaducts, Gates" category at the International Design Awards (IDA), one of the most prestigious awards in the design world, where innovative projects in the main categories of architecture, interior architecture, product design, fashion design and graphic design are awarded every year, held for the 11th time this year with the "Clark International Airport Terminal in the Philippines" project.

The proposal for "Philippines Clark International Airport Terminal", designed by GMW MIMARLIK, one of the leading brands of Turkey and the world in transportation sector structures, is the 11th. He was awarded the bronze medal in the "Arches, Bridges, Viaducts, Gates" category at the International Design Awards. This year, a jury of world-renowned architects and designers from 45 categories evaluated numerous projects from many countries around the world. 11. The International Design Awards are not the first success of the "Clark International Airport Terminal in the Philippines" project. The project was also a finalist in the "Future Transport" category at The Plan Award 2018, organized by Italy-based The Plan Magazine, one of the most prestigious publications in the world of architecture.

GMW ARCHITECTURE, which was invited by the international construction and project management team to enter the Design &Build tender for this project, aimed to create an important gateway to the Philippines by designing a new terminal structure within the borders of the existing Philippines Clark International Airport in order to reduce increased traffic in the Northern and Central Luzon regions of the Philippines.

The first phase of the "Clark International Airport Terminal in the Philippines" project includes the design of a new 110,000-square-foot terminal building and auxiliary facilities, parking, roadways, apron and airside service routes. The layout of the building is based on horizontal separation of the outgoing and incoming passenger circulation.

As with GMW ARCHITECTURE's other terminal designs, transparency in the structure aims to help passengers navigate easily within the terminal. In addition to this "intuitive navigation" design, the passenger experience is highlighted. Roof lights are placed vertically in sections of denim differences created on the roof surface in order to have controlled sunlight and prevent overheating in a warm climate. GMW ARCHITECTURE successfully meets critical design parameters such as passenger circulation, safety, operational efficiency, flexibility and adaptation, energy efficiency and local factors with design solutions.

The contemporary design, based on the local architecture of the Philippines, outweighs the use of copper to draw attention to copper material, which is not used in architecture despite having rich copper deposits in the country. The modular design concept aims to result in a faster and more economical construction method, with the large proportion of building components being prefabricated.
