The College of Architects of Mexico City (Colegio de Arquitectos de Ciudad de México) awarded the Silver Medal to the New Processing Building of the Tijuana Airport in its XVII Architecture Biennial in the category “Sustainable Transportation and Mobility”
The 40,000-sqm building, which directly connects Tijuana’s General Abelardo L. Rodríguez International Airport (TIJ) and the US, was built by Serrano Monjaraz + WSP México (Mexico) based on the project carried out by Estudio Lamela and LAM Arcquitectos.
The 40,000-sqm expansion increases the total area by 83% and makes Tijuana the city with the greatest connectivity in Mexico, with 37 direct connections to national destinations.
The new building regulates the terminal’s passenger flow and seeks to establish an international hub in Tijuana as a gateway to various Mexican destinations.
New commercial spaces, a gastronomic area, VIP areas, and inspection points for visitors have also been created.
