A brand new and futuristic Terminal 3 at Shenzhen’s Bao’an International Airport will be inaugurated next month after almost 5 years of construction, and it looks, ahem, reallyfuckingcool.
According to Studio Fuksas, the architects behind the project, the concept provokes the image of a sculpture with its organic shape.The structure of the building is steel with a concrete substructure, while the skin that envelops the structure shows the honeycomb motif. The 300,000 mq facade is made of metal panels and glass panels of different size that can be partially opened.
Shenzhen Bao’an International Airport is the fourth largest airport in China following Beijing, Shanghai, and Guangzhou in China.
