I like this art work. The interior of the airport should be designed in a way such that the visitors right after their arrival will subconsciously get a message "You are going to visit a modern city with long history!"

Not sure "fake" but misaligned. The dragon's tail in the 2nd row from the bottom should be matched to the rest of the body...Unless they didnt finish assembling it.

Not like an airport from the 70`s but an airport from 2007, designed in 70`s style....the colours, the shape, the ceiling....
Sorry, don't see it... I don't think anyone has every characterized a Norman Foster-designed building as '70s style' before... And as this is meant as an international gateway to China, I certainly don't think the planners had something retro in mind.

Great pix celestar0. It's interesting how Foster's concept of an airport terminal has evolved over the years -- from Stansted Airport to Hong Kong International Airport and now Beijing. I remember being absolutely blown away when I walked into HK Airport three days after it opened back in 1998. The sense of light and space was incredible. I imagine walking into Beijing's new terminal will be a very similar experience.

Dont get me wrong, I think its a wonderul terminal, and a lot of people are doing a very fine job building this.....I envy China a lot for having such a beatyfull airport....wish berlin had one like that too, but with 70`s I mean buildings, that were built by the, and that can be seen clearly as inspiration for foster .

Most of all McCormick Place, Chicago, by Murphy Jahn:

I hope the interior will have many red themes. I want this airport to scream CHINA and break the tradition of cold blue, gray and white at most airports. This is a very exciting project and I have high expectations.
