Very good and nice terminal, i've seen once before the opening and a felt in love with it... and even the colors are not the important fact in this discuss, i think they're fresh and gives the terminal a different look, it is not a clon of modern western airports, that we have thousands of them without any personality...

I do think this airport is a bit dark...The roof design is nice and I love the rainbow colors but I expected more from Richard Rogers. This is anyway the architecture firm that designs the "wow" new Pudong terminal that unfortunately didn't get built.

By the way, is it me or is the general terminal design is very similar to the Pudong T1 and T2 only with different roof and different materials?

I like how is NOT all white or glass or metalic and cold like most airports. I think what makes something a piece of art is the innovation and the "nothing alike" that gives it a unique personality. As I noticed, it also creates a lot of controversy about it's looks, which is always a sing of a breakthrow in desing, and something to pursue. Good job.

I love the terminal because you can actually distinguish it from the cliche "let's play with windows" layout that many new terminals adopted in the last few years. I actually like the use of yellow, but I am not a big fan of the rainbow pattern used to identify the parts of the terminal.

No, I still think it is quite dark...the whole airport seems to be so brownish. Maybe it is the color of the marble on the floor and the exposed concrete on the wall.

The only thing I like a lot about this airport is the use of different colors.

In some areas, especially the picture of the moving walkways and the waiting gates do look like KLIA. But I am sure the atmosphere will be different.
