Acapulco Airport

Acapulco, Guerrero

The Acapulco Airport is planned to increase passenger capacity to 1 million travelers annually and establish a new regional air hub in Mexico’s largest resort city. The project’s strategic aims are matched by a state-of-the-art terminal building, to provide the highest levels of comfort for passengers and to set a new environmental benchmark for airport buildings in Mexico. The design is rooted in a sense of place, responsive to the tropical climate of the Pacific Coast and inspired by local forms and materials. The new terminal building of the Acapulco Airport welcomes the city’s guests and locals, taking them back in time to the 1950s International Modernist Movement. An undulating roof echoes the Pacific Ocean in the distance and shades the entire airport while letting in light through openings and skylights. It is composed of prefabricated dome units for lower production costs and construction efficiency, a method inspired by the vernacular architecture in Acapulco. Inside, the folded façade creates shadowed space while vegetation refreshes the interior.
