The cancellation came after a public referendum on the airport was called by Andrés Manuel López Obrador, who was at that time Mexico's president-elect, and resulted in a majority vote against it.
López Obrador had made cancelling the project a key part of his election campaign over concerns about the $13.3 billion expected cost, as well as alleged corruption and environmental worries.
For a while, Copenhagen-basedBIG's vision for a skyscraper made from stacked glass boxes that decrease in size as the building ascends seemed to be the strong forerunner for the Two World Trade Center.
But after a protracted back-and-forth, the developer of the World Trade Center site in New York opted last year for a skyscraper by Foster + Partners over BIG's design.
A tower that is similar in spirit could still grace the Big Apple skyline, however. Last month, Adjaye Associates launched proposals fora building that resembles an upside-down version of the BIG World Trade Center tower.
The pair won a competition to design the New Tamayo Museum overlooking Mexico City back in 2009, but more than a decade later, it remains unbuilt.
Had it gone ahead, the museum would have resembled a cross jutting out of the hillside via acantilever, with a large viewing platform on its flat roof.
In July 2015, Japanese prime minister Shinzo Abe scrapped ZHA's design and the studio was unable to enter the reopened competition, having failed to secure a construction company.

Mies van der Rohe finished the design just a few weeks before his death in 1969, and famous British architectRichard Rogersdescribed the plans as "the culmination of a master architect's life work".
查尔斯王子, however, was less enamoured of what he called a "giant glass stump", and a long campaign against the tower by the royal helped ensure its ultimate rejection following a 1984 public inquiry.
Nearly six years on there have been few updates about the plant-covered tower, which was designed to have a park at its top and was intended to provide an ecosystem for hundreds of different species.
However, the Death Star-like structure never became reality.
OMA also designeda structure plan for RAK, which envisioned a "mix of functions, flexibility, and a strategic reserve" for the area, which has a projected population growth to 600,000 inhabitants by 2025.
The exhibition centre was not the only ambitious UAE project floated by OMA in 2007 that was ultimately never constructed.
The studio also produced a proposal for a tourist village on a mountainside in Ras Al Khaimah, which would have seen an inhabited dam, an inhabited bridge and a vertical village all built into a cliff.
由现任总理拥护Boris Johnson, who was mayor of London when it was announced in 2013, the plant-covered bridge was ditched in 2017.
That came after an inquiry found that the cost of building the Garden Bridge had risen from the original estimate of £60 million to more than £200 million, leading to Johnson's successor in City Hall, Sadiq Khan, withdrawing his support.
