All the other airports have even more grey. At least Madrid Barajas has a splash of colour!

You're just jealous because it has eclipsed Chep Lap Kok. The colours are a fresh touch. They also aid orientation.

1. It's Chek Lap Kok.
2. It has not eclipsed Chek Lap Kok.
3. The colours simply don't work. Many other people have also expressed similar opinion.
4. I can't be jealous because both Vancouver and Chek Lap Kok have much more elegant colours.

Bright colours don't mix. It's okay to have one bright colour as the theme colour but anything more than that simply doesn't work. A multi-bright-colour theme fails IMO because it lacks identity - there's no focal points in the colour theme.

I think this innovative use of colors, is what precisely set these new terminals apart from the rest. About time someone decides we had enough of the usual dull greyness of most airports
Simply stunning

Yes, that's what I thought too. The ugly collors, but the more I saw pictures, the more I liked it!

It's really a stunning airport and I.R.L. it would be nicer than on pics.
Because there is no decoration, no people, shops, screens or plants and trees. Just wait untill the airport is operating and you will be amazed!

We'll wait and see. I've managed to grow on LH's yellow so maybe Madrid's yellow isn't that bad after all

It looks great, although perhaps hues of blue in lieu of the yellow/rainbow would have made it look even better.

The design is good but the colours are bad.
I don't think the yellow goes with the concrete too well.

Colors, schmolors...

It works here, though. The thing that always strikes me coming out of the airport is how dry -- almost arid -- everything is. The new terminal is a nice fit into the hues of the landscape.

I wonder how well it will age, though...

Last-minute preparations for the opening of the world's largest airport terminal
Giles Tremlett
3 February 2006
The Guardian

Last-minute preparations for the opening of the world's largest airport terminal in Madrid are being marred by protesters who claim a massively expanded airport is set to shatter the peace of more than half a million Spaniards.

Terminal 4 at Madrid's Barajas airport, designed by British architect Lord (Richard) Rogers and due to start operations on Sunday, is split into two long buildings with rippling metal roofs that are connected by a driverless shuttle train. Two new runways, a new control tower and the new terminal will jointly allow Barajas to increase the number of flights from 53 to 120 an hour.

Authorities say it will eventually handle more flights than what is now Europe's second largest airport, Schiphol in the Netherlands.

But with the airport, first built close to the city in 1933, now surrounded by booming satellite towns, mayors representing some 700,000 people are continuing to protest about noise. They claim to have noticed an increase in flights over the past few days that have disturbed the sleep of those living to the north-east of the city.

Even more angry are the residents of the village of Belvis who have been told they may be moved as future airport expansion eats up the village's land.

Although Spain's AENA airports authority insisted yesterday that everything was under control, it was keeping journalists away from the new terminal.

A midnight flit will see a fleet of trucks moving Spain's Iberia airlines and its partners in the One World alliance - which includes British Airways, American Airlines and Aer Lingus - from the existing terminals on Saturday night.

Architects have provided space for a metro station but a funding row between regional and national authorities means that the metro line has not reached it yet. Travellers wishing to get on the metro must catch a bus to the old terminals, which will still be used by budget airlines such as easyJet and many other companies.

But the size of the new terminal means that Madrid travellers will have to ditch their habit of arriving for flights at the last minute. ABC newspaper has advised its readers to get to the airport with an hour and a half to spare.

Honestly I like the airport's colors! It is beautifully designed but I don't agree it's the sexiest airport!
