YEREVAN. – The old terminal of capital city Yerevan’s Zvartnots
International Airport cannot be torn down without an expert conclusion.
Mkrtich Minasyan, Head of the Union of Architects of Armenia, told
the aforesaid to Armenian News-NEWS.am.
He stressed that the buildings of importance in Armenia cannot be
demolished solely by the wish of the proprietor, or the managing
“Expert opinion is required to tear down such buildings,” Minasyan
In his words, it is apparent from the very first study that there is
no need to demolish the old terminal it; but it needs to be renovated
and its armatures need to be strengthened.
“If the building will have to be torn down just for that, with such
reasoning, 80 percent of the city’s [i.e., Yerevan] high-rises can
be demolished,” Mkrtich Minasyan concluded.
