You would be forgiven for confusing the new Beijing airport with an alien spacecraft.
After all, thanks to its spider-like layout and its striking orange hues, Beijing Daxing International Airport is very attractive thanks to its spider-like layout.
Having become one of the largest airports in the world, the fact that it is an impressive architectural feat is not surprising, as it was designed by the late Zaha Hadid, who was originally of pretty incredible buildings in the world.
It is estimated that once completed, the airport will accommodate approximately 72 million passengers annually by 2025.
But in reality, it has been designed to accommodate a total of 100 million passengers, allowing for many extensions if needed.
Not to mention that it is expected that 630,000 flights will take off and land on its four runways.
The terminal itself is 700,000 square meters in size and will be integrated with existing city transport links to facilitate passenger travel.
Overall, the design is intended to make things a little simpler by reducing the distances passengers have to travel between the check-in counter and boarding gates.
The central body of the airport will serve as the main hub where many restaurants and shops will be installed, each arm leading to the boarding gates.
The use of a central terminal also aims to reduce the carbon footprint of the aircraft.
You will have to wait a little longer if you wish to check for yourself, as construction is still in progress, even though the airport is due to open in September 2019.
A second airport in Beijing appeared after the international airport of origin reached its maximum capacity.
In 2011, a competition was held to allow architects to take over the project, which is run by the headquarters of Beijing Airport. In 2014, he joined architects like Zaha Hadid.
