This year, the theme of the annual Fentress Global Challenge was the Airport of the Future. The task was to design a terminal for one of 30 international airports to choose from. Students from more than 50 countries submitted their works to the competition. Among the shortlisted participants, three winners were selected, as well as the winner of the Audience Award. In second place is Anna Andronova, a student of the Kazan State University of Architecture and Civil Engineering.
