Luis Vidal:at Terminal 2.

24-04-2014TOBY MELVILLE

Palma.—When the new Terminal 2 at Heathrow airport opens later this year it will be a very proud day  for  Luis  Vidal, the Majorcan architect who drew up plans for the 2.5 billion pound building.
Vidal  was born in Barcelona but grew up on the island and attended Queen´s College in  Genova. He developed a love for water sports on the island. Between school and water sports, Vidal did some research on where to study architecture and he bumped into the word RIBA. It stands for Royal Institute of British Architects, a very selective club of architects born in 1834.  Its current 40.000 members worldwide could only join the club after a formal invitation, which in all cases followed a rigorous  academic and professional career  path. RIBA is like a golden seal for architects, it’s like the best presentation letter and above all it enhances the profession’s excellence.
And this was the start of the Vidal success story.  In 2004 he founded his own practice.  Today, with 65 architects in staff, Luis Vidal Architects is the largest studio in Spain and enjoys partnerships and alliances with some of the world’s finest practices. They have been involved in numerous projects across the globe.
