I'm honestly quite disappointed. I actually wanted to visit Beijing for T3...

The only thing I like is the Departure Hall, with the red roof, other than that, I see many lookalikes from other airports. Particularly, Hong Kong Airport and Seoul Incheon Airport for the railway station.

Why change if it is good, I like the blue sign in Hong Kong they are the best signing. And I don't see any "look-a-like" between Seoul Incheon station and Beijing T3 station other that they both make by glass, both have lots of sunlight and space...if it is copy, I think you are right.

many lookalikes from Hong Kong Airport? because they are designed by the same person? What's wrong with that?

and i think the best part is that they are trying to combine a modern architecture with many traditional Chinese elements, like the wall carved with dragons in the arrival hall. also heard they will be building two separate Imperial Gardens at the international departure area. anyone has pictures or renderings of those?

I like the design of the airport very much.

And stuff like the check in desks or some signs where you can find the toilet can always be changed.
Furthermore they are almost for sure changed after 10 years also in every other airport, so I dont see reasons, why these details "damage" the great over all appearance....


Edit: How many vehicles does the PTS supposes to have in everday service. just one car like in the pic seems a bit underdimensioned for such a big airport....

Are you talking about the people mover? Should be 4 with each having 3cars. Two on each end theres a part of the rail that splits allowing the cars of the same rail pass each other in opposite directions.

It looks like HK because it is from the same architect and its purposely designed in such way because the most important in the airport is functionality, and HK is the best example there is. As for Incheon railway station it hardly looks a like besides maybe surface curvatures. I think the station looks more like the French Charles de Gaulle terminal than the Korean station.

The flowers hardly ruin the airport. I agree its a bit tacky but I think its more like for grand opening purposes. Some good example of this is like the Guangzhou airport, Qindao Airport, Chongqing Airport, and even Shanghai's pudong they had flowers but its all gone now.

Hey guys, I noticed something wrong with the signs on this picture. Notice the arrival indicator the arrow is pointed upwards, shouldn't it be downwards.

You may be right...plus the directions of those arrows? Looks like they're converging to a point instead of telling you to walk underneath. And the signs look a little small for a large area like that.

Anyone familiar with it care to comment?

Exactly my point lol. I thought that most architects dislike having arrows at angles other than conventional up/down, left/right.

Absolutely beautiful. With all those gates do you think planes will be parked on the tarmac for boarding? I've noticed in pictures of Chinese airports alot of planes seem to do boarding and deplaning away from the gate. Then again when I was in Milan earlier this year our U.S. Airways flight was not assigned a gate when we arrived, we were bussed to the terminal.

Take it as a blessing. Beijing used to be known for its tackyness. During the old days there were so many buildings with HUGE big red Chinese signs on top of buildings that even a blind person can see and the signage were all unbelievably huge, now they've decided to go with the norm. I'm happy with the size of the signs actually.
