Following the recent title of the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (Manila International Airport) as the worst airport in the world, a team composed of an architect, interior designer, and a furniture designer made a probono proposal to improve and restore the NAIA Terminal 1.
“A pro-bono proposal from Budji Layug, Royal Pineda and Kenneth Cobonpue in cooperation with the National Competitiveness Council of the Philippines.
It’s time someone did something about the worst airport in the world. So we made this design because we believe that no matter how beautiful our country is, our airports give the first and last impressions. This plan is relatively inexpensive and simple to adapt. The plan also involves renovating the interiors to allow faster flow of travelers between security, immigration and departure.
The first step has been done. Lets hope our government moves on this proposal quickly.”
And finally, the government allots 1 billion pesos to proceed with the face lift of an international airport seeking to redeem itself! It’s about time! Thank you Lord! I can’t wait for the actualization of this project!
