Looking at the new terminal on the outside looks like a massive spaceship has landed in Shenzhen. Looks great!

Looks like a alien space ship that has landed! Si Fi movie!

Starships are generally the size of a airport terminal too

Questions

Last week i went through Shenzhen airport and could see the new Terminal. It looks amazing from the sky, it is almost completed from outside and even saw few planes attached to the gates of the terminal!!! I though the terminal is already open

Line-1 Metro station is so far away from the existing terminals and now with new T-3 opening soon, there has to be a shuttle bus or people mover between the metro station and terminal.

I'm guessing they might resort to using a bus in the meantime, but there will be a metro station attached to T3 eventually IIRC.

It you're talking about the thing coming out of the floor, it's the air conditioning vents.

Nope, I'm talking about the huge horizontal tube across the terminal over the shop.

I really hope the new terminal doesn't get ruined by bright, ugly advertising. Huge posters everywhere isn't going to compliment the stunning design.

It's not really a tube. I can see some roof light transmitting thru this thing. We may have to wait until the opening day to find out.
