I love airports, as I already mentioned in the previous post. I just found an interesting article in Travel&Leisure Magazine.
Terminal 3, Beijing International Airport
Beauty Mark: Arriving passengers disembark at the airport's highest level: "You're walking through a massive, massive space which is the gateway to China," says Foster + Partners CEO Mouzhan Majidi.
Terminal 4, Barajas Airport, Madrid
Beauty Mark: T4 is easy to understand because it's linear. "Rogers puts you inside a rainbow that stretches for half a mile," says architecture critic Paul Goldberger.
TWA Terminal, John F. Kennedy Airport, New York City
Beauty Mark: Eventually you'll be able to walk through the old TWA terminal and its 125-foot-long tubular passageways to check into your flight in the adjacent JetBlue terminal.
Sondika Airport, Bilbao, Spain
Beauty Mark: Even the parking garage, partially buried in a green hillside, is well thought out and beautiful.
Malvinas Argentinas Airport, Ushuaia, Argentina
Beauty Mark: The airport sits directly on the Beagle Channel, named for the H.M.S. Beagle, the vessel that carried Charles Darwin to South America.
Kansai International Airport, Osaka, Japan
Beauty Mark: Adjacent to the airport is Sky View, "the very first aero theme park in Japan," where you can play with flight simulators or watch takeoffs and landings from the observatory level.
