Daxing International Airport has opened in Beijing, a hub that is about to become the world's busiest, handling up to 72 million passengers each year by 2025.
The terminal building, designed by studio Zaha Hadid Architects and inspired by traditional Chinese architecture, consists of a central body from which six arms radiate, five containing boarding areas and one connecting the terminal to the outside area. The outdoor spaces were designed by Hong Kong design studio Lead 8.
More than 2400 professional floodlights were used for the lighting of the outdoor area and airbus parking to ensure the highest standards for lighting and performance required by a project that is about to redefine the airport paradigm of the future.
This engineering jewel is unique in the world among single terminal airports due to its huge size (equal to 97 football fields), innovative design and the use of extremely efficient modern technologies for total environmental sustainability. The services provided to customers, from baggage management to check-in and security take advantage of advanced technologies such as artificial intelligence and robotics.
