Denver at no. 2?? You've got to be kidding! I curse that airport every time I had to use it! It's is congested (esp where the regional jets are), plain and dull! The exterior isn't too bad but the interior is inferior!

Marrakech Menara Airport Terminal II, Morocco
one of the most beautiful in Africa and listed as top 15 in the world by travelandleisure.com
Quote:
World's Most Beautiful Airports



Marrakech Menara Airport, Morocco

This dramatic new airport terminal is an example of how Modernism and traditional Islamic architecture have begun to cross-pollinate. Designed by a team of architects led by Casablanca-based E2A Architecture and completed in 2008, the structure is formed of massive concrete rhombuses. This muscular approach is softened by the exquisite arabesque patterns on the building's glass skin, which cast complex, ever-changing shadows on the terminal's floors.

Beauty Mark: There are 72 photovoltaic pyramids generating power on the roof.

Uh, yeah, Denver? No way! It's still a great airport, though.

Most beautiful airport? I think the following ones completed after 1990 are legendary:

Stansted Airport (London, UK) Architect: Foster & Partners

Hong Kong International Airport Terminal 1 (Hong Kong, China) Architect: Foster & Partners

Kansai International Airport (Osaka, Japan) Architect: Renzo Piano

KL International Airport (Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia) Architect: Kisho Kurokawa

Denver International Airport (Denver, USA) Architect: Fentress Bradburn

Barajas Airport Terminal 4 (Madrid, Spain) Architect: Rogers Stirk Harbour

Changi Airport Terminal 3 (Singapore) Architect: SOM

Suvarnabhumi Airport (I only like its contact piers, not the main terminal!) (Bangkok, Thailand) Architect: Helmut Jahn

Reagan National Airport (Washington DC, USA) Architect: Caesar Pelli


My criteria are (1) aesthetics of the structural/architectural form, (2)originality and consistency of the architectural theme, (3) good spatial planning and ambience. The operation and amenities provided are not my considerations.

I've been to Beijing T3 once in June 2010. I must say that, even though I am a big fan of Lord Norman Foster, I found that Beijing T3 is not as good as I thought in terms of architectural design quality. T3 is huge, but it lacks the "light and slim" quality that can be found in his earlier works. The whole roof seems so massive and bulky.

Just my opinion.
