Here is New Nairobi Railway Station (Africa) which looks more modern, beautiful than Islamabad Airport.... Take a look...

I wonder when people will stop complaining about the design. That being said, our government has a big problem with not hiring international architecture firms.

I dont understand how its more modern. Maybe you find it. The new airport terminal of Islamabad ticks all the boxes of modern building.

1. Decent height of ceiling
2. Y shape which looks very modern
3. More use of glass to let sunlight in on walls side and then ceiling too
4. Jungle area which is a outcome of modern thinking where nature is loved and appreciated
5. Connected via M1 M2 and Kashmir highway including link roads which are by no means backwards.
6. Will be connected via metro bus and in future subject to demand with trains too

I just do not understand why we always have issues recognising our own achievements. 2 Noble prize winners and we hate them both. Qadeer khan humilated. Why always what ever we do good some how it becomes our complex too. And things we take pride in are non existential or unproven. For eg we are the most talented nation and world is after us to down us. i never understood how?

Plz compare it to Nairobi current airport. Airport cost alot more then just a train terminal. And not to forget a greenfield project which is like setting a small colony from scratch.

The front of the airport bears a slight resemblance with Aiwan e Sadr.
