MANILA - The Philippines' Mactan Cebu International Airport (MCIA) Terminal 2 has won an award at the World Architecture Festival, beating transport stations in other countries. 

MCIA won the festival's Completed Buildings-Transport category, edging out Singapore's Jewel Changi Airport, Hong Kong West Kowloon Station, Sydney Australia's Barangaroo Ferry Wharf, and several other structures. 

"The architecture of Terminal 2 was designed by multi-awarded firm Integrated Design Associates (IDA) Hong Kong and its Principal Architect, Winston Shu, in collaboration with world-class Filipino designers," MCIA said. 

World-famous Cebuano furniture-maker Kenneth Cobonpue helped conceptualize the terminal, which has timber arches and floor-to-ceiling glass panels.

GMR-Megawide, a Filipino-Indian consortium, built the 65,500-square meter facility.
