Munich International Airport

The terminal is very spacious and bright.



























There is a huge square outside the entrance with a large canopy.







Terminal 2



Parking & Control Tower



Airplanes from the observation deck (2 euros)







From the gate : notice the smaller aircraft parked on the tarmac. Yet even more smaller aircraft are parked beyond to the left.

Madrids looks cool, but its borderline tacky and it might not age very well.

AMSTERDAM SCHIPHOL INTERNATIONAL

Europe's No.4 in passengers and 3rd in freight.



Schiphol's 2004 Passenger Numbers Reach 42.5 Mln
January 5, 2005

Amsterdam's Schiphol Airport handled a record 42.5 million airline
passengers last year even with the number of flights below the levels
prior to the September 11, 2001 attacks, its operator said.

Schiphol Group, which operates the Netherlands main hub airport,
said in a statement on Wednesday that in addition to a 6.5 percent rise
in passenger numbers in 2004, cargo handling rose 8.5 percent to more
than 1.4 million tonnes.

The airport group, which the government may partially privatize,
said it expected a further 4.5 percent rise in passenger handling numbers
this year.

heres the motif of this airport. i got it from the Aga Khan's website, the Landscaper of this airport.

http://www.akdn.org/agency/akaa/six.../indonesia.html

Development of the Indonesian economy, with the consequent growth in air traffic, required the government to increase the size of its international/domestic airport by adding a second terminal, raising its total capacity to 18 million passengers. Terminal II is very similar to Terminal I, completed in 1985, both having been designed by Paul Andreu, and based on the premise that unlike most contemporary airports, Indonesia's should reflect the culture and traditions of the country. Both terminals interpret the rural buildings of Java: clusters of shingled houses with steeply inclined roofs scattered among flat expanses of fields. Both integrate landscape and building in an exceptionally beautiful way. The airport structures are designed as open pavilions, set within the lush, natural environment, providing shade, shelter, and ventilation. The architect's wish to keep the pavilions and all the circulation spaces beyond the check--in areas completely open to the natural landscape was fully realised in Terminal I, but not in Terminal II, since the airport authorities wished the newer terminal to be free of rain and insects, and air conditioned. Windows had to be installed throughout the pavilions and circulation corridors of Terminal II, thus separating the interior spaces from the gardens. Even so, the landscaped setting, filled with tropical plants, offers the traveller a satisfying preview of the natural landscape of central Java. The jury noted with favour that both terminals, unlike most airports where the efficient movement of people is the primary objective, provide a variety of spaces for gathering and contemplation, alone or in groups.
