I can't wait to see pictures of the airport filled with passengers, with many aircrafts at the gates. It looks so empty now!

The collors are different, it is painted in rainbow colours, Yellow in the middle of the Terminal and red on the left part (as seen from the runways) and on the other end of the terminal green and blue: like this:

red >>> orange >>> yellow >>> green >>> blue

If you want to think the design of terminals is boring and awful, then it's up to you. However, this "boring" and "awful" design is on the first pages of architecture magazines all over the world, and it's admired all over the globe for being one of the most important airport investments ever done.

I love France, I really admire french culture, but the worst thing you have is your infinite "chauvinisme". With our characteristic modesty and making no publicity at all, Spain is taking off. You'll have to manage with living with a developed and modern Spain... But will you ever be able to? Maybe not, french will be still thinking that every single thing done in France is much better.

And this message does not want to piss anybody off, just a personal thought that I think many people will agree on.

Salut à toute la France.

In may senses France is like a museum, specially in architecture. I think that there is much more inspiration in London, Berlin, New York,etc. Paris is like a wonderful cementery. Beautifull but it smells a bit to dead bodies. I prefer something fresher, even if it´s less perfect that Paris like the cities that I have said. Anyway I find Nouvel, Perrault and other French architects are interesting.

I think that if we write to the architect he probably will chage the colour immediately... everybody hates yellow, it´s something international...

Opening on Jan 31st... not 100% sure, though

I know they'll start to test all the systems very soon, with real baggage and passengers (extras, of course...)

Don't be so hard on him. Everyone has the right to disagree.
To be honest so far the pictures have dissapointed me compared to the renders, but I might change my mind when I visit.
