That's some fast progress, it seems like some parts of the apron are already completed.

they are going to add one additional runway, so that the airport has 2.

The construction speed is amazing, a project like that would take 7-10 years in Europe. In China they make it in 3 years. (to be finished in 2010 )

I guess they are working 24/7.

seriously, chinese project managers and workers like to work for months without taking a rest, and take a long vacation after the end of the projects.

well, it's probably not a matter of 'like' or 'dislike,' it's just how the business is run here, with high pressure of deadlines. they are forced to take it or just leave it...

great rendering! Anybody know if there's a people mover system connecting the airport to the railway station? It's quite some distance and hard to walk through.

thanks a lot for the new renderings. The interior really looks quite nice.

But the exterior?

Let me ask the Chinsese members of this forum: Do you think this looks good?

http://www.201100.cn/attachment/180_...8dbb4d6cb6.jpg

I have seen so many good architcture in China rising over the last years, but this Traffic Hub somehow looks worse on every published rendering. Or is it just me, who thinks so?

The technological and infrastructural apsect is mind blowing, of course, and I wish we had stations and airports like that in Europe.

personally, i like this design, and many chinese members agree with me!

it's not a bad design, although it's not a bold and 'special' one anyway. But we are somehow tired of those 'creative and daring' project proposed by the western firms. Maybe it's time for a change!

i'm glad it's a 'low-profile' and function-oriented design, and hope they'll put more emphases on the interior!

moreover, given the deadline of 2010, this design probably is the most acceptable and efficient one so far...

I realize in terms of architecture, Shanghai is more moderate, form and function are more or less at a balance although it means that there are few architectural marvels.

Beijing on the other hand, has been the more daring one. Regardless of Asian or Western architects, the buildings are "louder" than Shanghai.
