A menu found in China--yea...there's still lots of work that still needs to be done...But it's reasonable to say that since english isn't an official language, its understandable.

airport lighrail - April 22nd

Length is 28km, most of which running on elevated rail bridges. Pictures were taken in a running car on airport expressway so there are some blurs.























Seems its exactly the same with this rendering

Pictures taken april 5th

For some of you guys this may be a repost, since I already posted these pictures on another thread... but anyway, enjoy.

I took the pictures when I visited one of the new terminals with a group of students/teachers during our study tour to Beijing and Shanghai. These pictures were taken on april 5th. The fourth picture is stitched together since the building is so big, it's impossible to catch it in one picture...

The width of each terminal (from tip to tip) is about 800 meters. The length of the entire building (both terminals with middle section) is roughly 3 kilometers... just to give you an idea.
They are currently building the terminals next to the 'old' airport, which is still in use. After the completion of the new airport, the old one will still be partially used for certain flights (guess domestic, but I'm not entirely sure).

Someone noticed the red collumns at the departure drop off area; in ancient China, red collumns were seen at imperial buildings or complexes, for example the Forbidden City, the Temple of Heaven Complex and the Summer Palace. Painting the terminal's collumns red could be a reference to this. The 'golden' roof of the terminal also reminds me of the yellowish roofs in the Forbidden City... Only an emperor was allowed to use this color for his roofs.

Two pictures of different models of the airport. The two Y-shaped terminals and the middle section are clearly visible. The 'old' airport is in the rear left on the first picture.

-
The subway (or lightrail) station in front of the terminal.
-

-
The interior of the lightrail station under construction.

-
A view from the lightrail station towards the side. The collumns are supporting the departure drop off area.
-

-
A view from ground floor. People enter the building from the drop off area one level higher. Watch the 'bridges'.
-

-
One more picture of the interior, including marble tiles for the floor.

It would be cool if they have dragon and phoenix etching on the columns, like some palaces in Beijing.
