Norman Foster wins Mexico City airport bid

Thursday, September 4, 2014

British architect Norman Foster and Fernando Romero, a son-in-law of Mexican billionaire Carlos Slim, won the bid for the design of Mexico City's New airport.

The new six-runway project will be built next to the Benito Juarez International Airport on the eastern flank of Mexico City, where the government already owns land.

The futuristic, spider-shaped airport for the capital will ease delays and boost capacity at a cost of $9.17 billion in public and private funding.
