Madrid Airport Wins Architecture Prize - Video

Sun Oct 15, 2006 12:42 pm

The new terminal at Madrid Airport has won the 2006 Stirling Prize for architecture.

If you go to:
and then enter 'Madrid Airport' in the 'Search' box in the top right corner you will be able to watch three different videos featuring the terminal by clicking on the boxes on the right of the new screen.

The last of these videos entitled 'Richard Rogers Partnership' and dated 13 October is probably the best. The middle of the three, 'Airport wins architecture prize', is possibly better than the top video.
