Mexico City • British architect Norman Foster and Mexican colleague Fernando Romero have had their design chosen for Mexico City's new $9.2-billion airport.
Foster is one of the world's leading architects and designed the Beijing Terminal 3 airport. Romero is the son-in-law of Mexican telecom magnate Carlos Slim.
The new Mexico City airport will cover nearly 11,400 acres of former lakebed adjacent to the present, over-crowded facility. It will have six runways and capacity to serve 120 million passengers per year when it is finished.
