It turns out that the world’s largest airport terminal may also have the world’s largest… ummm… oyster ditch? cod canal? tuna taco?
Currently under construction in the capital, the Beijing Daxing International Airport will have 7 runways and be able to deal with 100 million passengers each year when it is fully completed, some day.
Covering an area of 2,680 hectares (6,600 acres), the architect, Zaha Hadid, an Iraqi-born English designer, can probably be excused for not noticing every little detail of her future masterpiece.
However, someone did happen to notice that part of the design looks suspiciously like a sausage wallet, otter’s pocket, punani… The photo was shared on Weibo by prominent “Big V” Yang Jinlin to his nearly 4 million followers, where it was spotted by The Nanfang:
Yang included the caption: “Here’s a bird’s-eye view of the design for the new Beijing Airport. Do you know the name of the designer?”
Weibo users delighted in mocking the designer, accusing Zaha Hadid of having a filthy mind. While others thought they were really stretching it, saying that trees outside the airport more closely resemble a vajayjay than does the design.
In case you are having a hard time seeing it, another netizen drew this helpful diagram:
In the minds of some, the design reminded them of the unique architectural features of the People’s Daily headquarters building in Beijing, which during construction looked a whole like a purple-pointed people poker, one-eyed trouser snake or meat truncheon.
And then later, looked a bit less like one when it was finished:
With the airport expected to complete construction in September 2019, designers still have ample time to make changes before this comes to the attention of President Xi.
