In the category future infrastructure projects, the new Schiphol Pier is shortlisted for the WAF Awards. These are yearly bestowed during the World Architecture Festival, which this year takes place from the 28th to the 30th of November in the Amsterdam RAI. The architecture and interior of the pier were designed by cepezed and cepezedinterior as part of an integral team headed by AECOM. The new pier is characterized by a high degree of spaciousness, an abundance of natural light and long sightlines. An ambitiuous sustainability and a rich diversity of pleasant sitting places and customer facilities also contribute to the pier's character. Completion and occupation of the over 55.000 m2 pier is planned for 2019 already. Overall, projects from 81 countries are nominated for 39 of the WAF Awards categories.
