Not as glassy, but beautiful nonetheless: Terminal 3 at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport in Manila. Pictures are from Wikipedia:

Hailed several times as the Philippines' most beautiful countryside airport: Iloilo International Airport in Iloilo City. Picture uploaded on Wikipedia, taken by habagatcentral1 from the Philippine forums.

Reagan National Airport (Washington DC)

Apart from Dulles, Washington DC has another equally elegant airport terminal building, i.e. Reagan National Airport Terminal B/C opened in 1997. The vault module reminds me of the cathedrals of medieval churches in Europe. The flooring design was also very nice.
Designer: Caesar Pelli.

Stansted Airport, London(or Cambridge?)

This small terminal building, designed by the world renowned British architect Lord Norman Foster, was open in 1991. It represents the prototype of modern terminal building.

Beauty:
A simple, light yet elegant umbella module used all over the terminal building. Very consistent.
Excellent integration of architectural form and function. Structural elements are expressive but not intrusive.
Flexible in internal space planning.

Even many recently completed terminal buildings cannot match the quality of this one!

Schiphol Airport a.k.a Amsterdam Airport, mainport of Europe, and the national Airport of the Netherlands.

The airport is one out of four airports in the world to have a rating of four stars in Skytrax's grading system.

It's the fifth largest airport in Europe, and 14th of the world. Schiphol uses a one terminal concept, where all facilities are located under a single roof, fanning off the central 'plaza'.

In its January issue the prestigious Travel & Leisure magazine published an article called “The Most Beautiful Airports in the World".

This selection of airports was made by a renowned architecture Critic, Karrie Jacobs, who writes on travels, architectural design, visual language and architecture- applied- technology in various publications, such as the New York Times, ID & Fortune. She’s also an editor of the most prestigious devoted magazines of architecture, landscaping and urban design. She’s currently a professor at the New York School of Visual Arts.

Jacobs considered not only the building architectural beauty, or its integration to the landscape but also its functionality for passengers.

According to the article, the “most beautiful” airports in the world are the following::
• Terminal 3, Beijing International Airport, China;
• Terminal 4, Barajas Airport, Madrid, Spain;
• TWA Terminal, John F. Kennedy Airport, New York City, USA;
• Carrasco International Airport, Montevideo, Uruguay;
• Sondika Airport, Bilbao, Spain;
• Denver International Airport, USA;
• Incheon International Airport, Korea del Sur;
• Marrakech Menara Airport, Marrakesh;
• Chek Lap Kok Airport, Hong Kong, China;
• Tempelhof International Airport, Berlin, Germany;
• Malvinas Argentinas Airport, Ushuaia, Argentina;
• Kansai International Airport, Osaka, Japan;
• Kuala Lumpur International Airport, Malaysia.

A little surprised to note that Singapore Changi Terminal 3 was not on the list.

Copenhagen's design is top-notch. Although not very big, you feel it's a well-done facility the moment you step in and notice the details.

Terminal 5 in Heathrow looks pretty awesome and the above terminal in Sweden looks pretty cozy with the wood flooring - definitely something different for an airport. I will be going to the new T3 at Del next month and I will pass through Schiphol which is certainly a very nice airport. I have not been to Changi since 1999, but the interiors are truly beautiful, especially the gardens, the exteriors however were very boring.

Here are some better pics of the new T3 in Delhi though:
Quick facts:
-5th largest airport terminal in the world after Dubai, Beijing, Hong Kong, and Bangkok.
-Two piers (divided into two concourses with one used for domestic and the other for international flights) are apart of the terminal with a combined 78 aerobridges for 48 gates.
-A 100 room transit hotel is within the terminal itself.
-A 4300 car garage is attached to the terminal and an airport express line is linked to the airport.

What's even more surprising is that THF is still on the list.
