The new terminal's height is 45m so I guess the tallest column is about +40m.

again with the generalization. That obviously is a different part of the airport from the pictures that we debated over perivously.

from the pictures we have seen so far, the door does not appear to be a problem. yes there are other areas to explore but at least it's not an outstanding issue for the new terminal.

^

one thing to notice is that these stores don't have either venting above, or support beside the storefront.

So we can only conclude that glass doors are reserved as a last measure for stores that can not use roll ups. Like the ones in older pictures.

Recycle is also waste at the moment you throw it away.
So it just makes it more clear what belongs to which bin.

I agree. Very well put together. I can't wait to fly into PEK now. Hopefully American Airlines will start flying there soon.

That head of stand road makes Toronto Pearson's vehicle lanes look like hutongs.

Not sure it really makes a difference. When I was in Changsha last month, the cleaner took the recyclables and non-recyclables and put them them all together into the same trash cart anyway.
