Madrid Barajas Airport new terminal (Spain)

This new terminal was finished last February. I think it is one of the best buildings of Madrid. Their authors are Richard Rogers and Lamela. What do you think about it?

































I want to thank Carretero, m3c and Zoom for their splendid pix. (I think I haven´t forgotten any name, sorry if I have.)

I hope you enjoy it!

Probably one of the best designed airports in the worlds. The architecture is second to none and the colours are great...maybe one thing that is missing, is some vegetation in the building..same goes for quite a few airports..always find that a great piece when architects incorporate trees, bamboo or such into the their designs..makes the place more alive..

Just blue and green on the pillars, maybe something more spanish, something about their culture.

Thank you all for your comments.

One thing about the colours: They have a practical sense too. When you buy the ticket, it has a colour on it. SO when you go inside the building you know you must go where that colour is to take your plane. And as you can see all the colours go slowly from the most cold to the most hot (red). It saves a lot of time in a building that is 1 km. long.


Glad you have enjoyed these pix.

I have recently discovered this one:
