‘THE FATE OF ZVARTNOTS AIRPORT OLD BUILDING: ASSESSMENT OF THE NEW DRAFT’
February 8, 12:00

The draft Master Plan for 2018-2022 presented by the Concessionaire of Zvartnots International Airport and Gyumri Shirak Airport stipulates demolishing the old building of Zvartnots Airport.

The authors of the draft Master Plan argue that the old building is in an emergency condition and cannot be re-operated. This is the main reason for dismantling it. Meanwhile, architects counter that the building has been neglected, with no investments for its repair. According to the architects, the structure meets the present standards and actually needs merely cosmetic repair to be able to function further.

On February 8, the Media Center hosted a discussion on ‘The Fate of Zvartnots Airport Old Building: Assessment of the New Draft’. It was attended by Ms Anahit Tarkhanyan, daughter of architect and old airport building’s co-author Artur Tarkhanyan, Mr. Mkrtich Minasyan, Chairman of the Armenian Union of Architects, and Mr. Grigor Azizyan, Director of Armproject Institute and Chairman of the Public Council Urban Development Subcommittee.
