Dang! Fast, very fast in construction and huge. I like the roof especially those traingular like things sticking out it reminds me of the dragon's scale.

I doubt they are gonna use bullet trains. I don't think this airport is that far from the city. From what I heard they're just gonna extend the Beijing metro a new line sorta thing.

Cool, but the height of the terminal isn't high enough?

Beijing's International Airport new terminal for Olympics

Beijing's new international airport terminal will be
the gateway to the city as it welcomes athletes
from around the world to the twenty-ninth Olympiad
in 2008. The world's largest and most advanced airport
building - not only technologically, but also in terms
of passenger experience, operational efficiency and
sustainability - it will be welcoming and uplifting. A symbol
of place, its soaring aerodynamic roof and dragon-like form
will celebrate the thrill and poetry of flight and evoke
traditional Chinese colours and symbols.

Located between the existing eastern runway and
the future third runway, the terminal encloses a floor
area of more than a million square metres and is designed
to accommodate an estimated 43 million passengers per
annum, rising to 53 million by 2015. Although conceived
on an unprecedented scale, its design expands on the
new airport paradigm created by Stansted and Chek
Lap Kok. In that sense it represents the crest of a learning
curve. Designed for maximum flexibility to cope with the
unpredictable nature of the aviation industry, like its predecessors,
it aims to resolve the complexities of modern air travel,
combining spatial clarity with high service standards.
Public transport connections are fully integrated,
walking distances for passengers are short, with
few level changes, and transfer times between
flights are minimised. Like Chek Lap Kok, the
terminal is open to views to the outside and
planned under a single unifying roof canopy,
whose linear skylights are both an aid to orientation
and sources of daylight - the colour cast changing
from red to yellow as passengers progresses through the building.

The terminal building will be one of the world's most
sustainable, incorporating a range of passive environmental
design concepts, such as the south-east orientated
skylights, which maximise heat gain from the early morning
sun, and an integrated environment-control system
that minimises energy consumption and carbon emissions.
In construction terms, its design optimises the performance
of materials selected on the basis of local availability,
functionality, application of local skills, and low cost procurement. Remarkably, it will have been designed and built in just four years.
