"Star Fish" is the new fashion???

After a trend of "大" or "天" shape terminal designs, namely, Beijing, Hong Kong, Kunming, Shenzhen. Wonder if star fish shaped terminals will become the new trend?
Beijing New Airport terminal is one, and a year ago when Qingdao announced the winner of their terminal design, it was also star fish shaped terminal:

Qingdao:



Beijing:

Wow, I really must say that the design is very futuristic and integrated in nature. It really allows seamless flight transfers for most passengers, if not everyone... I wonder, though, how the gates will be divided for domestic and international services, and how the passengers will be efficiently delivered from door to gate and vice versa without mixing up their gate assignments.

Question about Daxing airport

Why will this new airport have north-south runways instead of east-west runways? I guess that there will be more noise pollution in Beijing because of these north-south runways?

Probably because of wind direction. If you watch it on google maps, there are mountains at north-side of Beijing. So, this is to minimize the crosswind chance when the plane landing. Also because BCIA has already south-north runway direction to make it easier for traffic controlling.

Zaha Hadid and ADPI Unveil Plans for World’s Largest Passenger Terminal in Beijing

http://www.archdaily.com/595471/zaha...al-in-beijing/



ADP Ingeniérie (ADPI) and Zaha Hadid Architects (ZHA) have unveiled designs for what will be the world’s largest airport passenger terminal – the Beijing New Airport Terminal Building. The Daxing scheme, based off the bid-winning planning concept by ADPI, hopes to alleviate traffic from Beijing’s existing Capital Airport, which is operating beyond its planned capacity.

“Initially accommodating 45 million passengers per year, the new terminal will be adaptable and sustainable, operating in many different configurations dependent on varying aircraft and passenger traffic throughout each day,” stated ZHA in a press release. “With an integrated multi-modal transport centre featuring direct links to local and national rail services including the Gaotie high speed rail, the new Daxing airport will be a key hub within Beijing’s growing transport network and a catalyst for the region’s economic development, including the city of Tianjin and Hebei Province.”





Under the leadership of the Beijing New Airport Headquarters (BNAH) and the Local Design Institute, the joint design team consists of ADPI and ZHA, along with competition consortium group members Buro Happold, Mott MacDonald and EC Harris.

I assume that means the north terminal will be Phase 1 handling 45 million passengers, and eventually the south terminal will be built bring capacity to 80 million. Or the main (north) terminal will be built in phases too?

Airports take off as economic centers
6 February 2015
China Daily Excerpt

Today's major airports have moved beyond 20th century centers of mass transit to also become 21st century strategic business infrastructure. In the process, they are attracting nearly all commercial activities traditionally found in metropolitan downtowns.

This has transformed many from what were once "city airports" into urban economic entities in their own right - airport cities. Becoming powerful business magnets, some airport areas now rival metropolitan centers in industry mix and regional economic dominance.

International airports are particularly vital to globally oriented, time-sensitive firms - those high-value businesses that depend on fast and efficient long-distance transport of everything and everyone from smartphones, biomeds, and sushi-grade tuna to corporate executives, investment bankers and professional sales staff. Airports are also essential to cities and provinces seeking to modernize their economies, boost exports and draw foreign tourists.

China's leaders understand this. The country's central, provincial and municipal governments are aggressively constructing, expanding and upgrading airports to compete globally and attract business while improving aeronautical efficiencies and passenger experiences. According to the Civil Aviation Administration of China and aeronautical consulting firm Avia-Tek, at least 85 civil airports either will be formally planned, newly constructed, or substantially expanded from 2015 to 2020.

Approximately 280 billion yuan ($44.8 billion) is being invested in China's civil airports annually. At this rate, it can be expected that about 1.5 trillion yuan will be spent on the country's airport development during the next five years. Such investments will range from 250 million yuan for Huizhou Airport in Guangdong province to 80 billion yuan for the Beijing Capital Second Airport at Daxing.

Airports are being built on an artificial island in Dalian, Liaoning province, and flattened mountaintops in Hechi, the Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region, and Shennongjia, Hubei province, and in the far reaches of the Inner Mongolia and Tibet autonomous regions. In many cases, new airport projects receive considerable funding from the central government. In others, municipalities are taking on the financial burden of airport construction, typically accruing huge debt in the process.

There is growing concern that an increasing number of China's municipalities are getting in over their heads with airport debt. Critics also argue that an airport construction "bubble" is being created through overinvestment and that some proposed airports are simply not needed.

Critics are right to an extent and the central government is aware of these concerns. CAAC statistics show that nearly three-quarters of China's civil airports lose money and that upwards of 90 percent of smaller regional airports operate at a loss.

These statistics tell only part of the story, however. If not placed in a broader cost-benefit context, they can create apprehensions, which can potentially derail otherwise rational airport investment initiatives.

While it is certainly best for airport accounting balance sheets to show annual revenues at least meeting operating expenditures, this is not the true measure of net benefit of airport investment and ongoing expenditures. Airports, in addition to being enterprises, are valuable public infrastructures that bring considerable benefits to people and businesses in the regions they serve, as well as to the country as a whole.

At the macro level, there is the economic stimulus effect of airport (and other infrastructure) investment that China has used effectively to counter slowdowns in the private sector, creating new jobs, business revenues and, ultimately, additional taxes.

Will this Airport be farther away from the city center than PEK? I used to live in Beijing but for obvious reasons never went to Daxing district.

The terminal looks great, T3 in the existing airport is probably the most architecturally aesthetic airport in the world. This looks like it is inspired by T3, which is fine by me. Will PEK become Beijing's Hongqiao after this is built?

It's more than twice as far away (depending on what you're measuring from). Beijing does not seem slated to have a Hongqiao like Shanghai. The Beijing high-speed network is, and seems destined to remain, poorly integrated with the airports.

It would appear that China's love of Zaha Hadid is far from over.

No, they are going to divide the traffic based on airline alliances. Star Alliance members (including Air China) and some other airlines will stay at PEK, while OneWorld and SkyTeam members will move to Daxing.
