Efficiency - Lima Jorge Chavez
Interior - Hong Kong Chek Lap Kok
Exterior - I second Beijing (though it does resemble a high class dog bone)
Exciting - Singapore Changi T2, T3 (forget T1 - not very exciting there).
Size - Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport

I take that back . . .PEK resembles a very futuristic AND high class dog-bone shape. Why a dog bone though? Who in their right mind would think of PEK's T3 and associate it with giving it a dog-bone shaped terminal?

The main terminal appears too industrial-like. The true beauty of BKK lies with its contact piers on the airside.

That's because avaiation industry in the far east region had been blooming over the last 10-15 years, leading to heavy investments in airport infrastructures.

BTW, I did mention Reagan National Airport in the USA and Standsted in the UK. These two airport terminals aren't big, but the architectural qualities are superb.

Certainly Porto Airport has to be on the list. Not the largest, but very modern, unique and relaxed. Best airport I've ever been to.

HKIA is probably my favorite. Why? Scale, ease of use, and the brilliant transport.
