Take the steel roof off;
Increase the dimensions, especially the central space;
Add a roof with a connection to local architectural language.
The roof is made of solar energy panels. It should definitely stay.

Sorry for being unclear.
I didn't intend to add suggestions;
I only noted the (not many) the differences between Beijing and this terminal.
One of them seemed to me to be that the new Kuwait Terminal had a wall/roof arches structure made of concrete/stone (rather than steel as in Beijing).
A solar roof should definitely stay!

Very impressive design! Is it mostly concrete structure or metal frame?

Well it is Foster + Partners they always does that !! but I don't blame them, because it is an airport they have to go with similar shapes, at the end the will serve the same plane models !

Plus, Foster + Partners trying to achieve an identity when it comes to architect !! Google it !

One last thought, look at how the banks. They always look similar in someway .

Nothing official yet, but an educated guess will be: Concrete
