Awesome architecture 3

Beijing International Airport

China is rising as a new economic power in the world and its rapid growth in all spheres is a proof of it. It has some of the world’s greatest architecturally amazing buildings.
The Beijing International Airport is one such spectacular example. It was designed by Foster & Partners, and was opened in the March 2008. It is Feng Shui compliant it is an excellent example of Chinese traditions.
To facilitate passengers differentiate between different segments of the vast areas, skylights shed different shades of yellow and red light across walls- a unique means to guide passengers.
It has an environment management system that helps decrease carbon emanations, and use of the skylights on a south-east axis helps to keep the building cool.
