Renowned UK architects Foster + Partners has won a contract to design a new terminal at Kuwait International Airport.

It beat intense competition with several international firms to land the deal, the firm's senior executive and architect Richard Dilworth announced.

This is the second project for Foster + Partners, which is headed by world famous designer Sir Norman Foster, in Kuwait following the designing of the headquarters of National Bank of Kuwait, Dilworth said.

Kuwait also represents one of the important markets for Foster + Partners in the Middle East, Dilworth said in comments published by KUNA News Agency.

Foster + Partners is currently implementing a number of projects in the region including Abu Dhabi National Museum, Saudi Economic City and a huge stadium in Qatar.
