I'm glad they're building this airport and I'm sure it will be very functional and nice, BUT in comparison to all of these phenomenally awesome looking airports in Asia that have been built in recent years, this airport is looking very boring and unspectacular aesthetics-wise.

I like the Design of the Airport. Its decent
I also like nice designed Airports like some in Asia but thats too much sometimes IMO. A spectacular Airport doesnt suit to the region Berlin/Brandenburg .
!in my Opinion!

Why do you say that? The Hauptbahnhof is "spectacular", no? Do you think it doesn't suit the region? The same with SonyCenter, the Jewish Museum, etc... I think Berlin should have a "spectacular" airport. Berlin has other spectacular achitecture. Bauhaus is boring.

Hellomoto is right Darryl!

If by "spectacular"you mean an asian-like airport, then It wouldn't fit Berlin.

Berlin is more classy and sophisticated that any asian city, it's airport doesn't need to be a weedding cake with stravagant shapes and lights.

BBI is spectacularly elegant and classy, more it's timeless.

lets compare it with the asian airports that you like in 2030.
the asian ones will look "demodee", but BBI will still look classy and eternal.

it's Berlin tradition to build elegant timeless airports.
BBI just follows Tempelhoff tradition in this respect.

is very German.

By your account it would seem as though racism is a classic German quality as well.

Can someone change the thread title, please? Airport code for the new airport is BER (currently Berlin's city designator, not needed anymore in the future since this airport will be Berlin's only one)! BBI is the Indian airport of Bhubaneswar.

Can't wait to see some construction pics from the inside of the terminal. ... or once the jet bridges receive their glass panels.

Berlin airport city breaks ground

http://www.globalairportcities.com/b...ks-ground.html





Work to create a 16-hectare airport city at Berlin Brandenburg International Airport, featuring car hire and parking facilities, an office complex and 4-star hotel began today (September 28).

Set to be completed by June 2012, in time for the opening of the new airport, the Baubeginn Airport City complex will feature four multi-storey car parks with space for 10,000 vehicles, a car hire facility, 24,000sqm of office space developed by Fay Projects and associated facilities.

One exclusive multi-storey car park will be built directly to the south of the new terminal building, while a further three multi-storey car parks will be located inside the airport city, offering optimum convenience and everything within a short distance. The terminal will be just a few minutes by foot from the airport city thanks to a feeder level.

A $240 million 4-star hotel and related facilities will be developed by Frankfurt-based Steigenberger Hotels AG, offering 322 rooms, including 27 suites and nine conference and function rooms in a 1,500sqm dedicated space, which will also boast international cuisine and a spacious spa area.

Holger Würk, managing director of Deutsche Anlagen-Leasing GmbH & Co. KG (DAL), the company leasing the multi-storey car parks said: “The realisation of these third-party investments truly underlines the economic importance of the airport. Otherwise, it would not have been possible for us, as an investor, to sell the idea of this project to financing partners within the space of a few weeks.

“A project that considerably relies on the properties to be developed and the achievable cash flows as collateral rather than the equity capital provided by the airport or its shareholders, state guarantees or other additional securities. This is something we, and the financing banks, do only if we believe in the project and its economic importance,” he added.

Dr Manfred A Körtgen, COO of Berlin Airports said: “We are building the airport city together with our partners. Right at the heart of the new airport, an urbane new service complex will be built in time for the opening of BBI. We have designed the airport city in line with the airport’s concept of having everything within a short distance. The fact that Deutsche Anlagen-Leasing has invested €240 million in this project highlights the appeal of BBI as a business location. Further investors are more than welcome.”

Design aesthetics

I think you got it all wrong. It is not a question or issue of racism but aesthetics and design philosophy. Some designs age more gracefully than others. BBI airport has a conservative & timeless design that is simple yet elegant- making it esthetically pleasing to the eye by seamlessly blending tradition with modernity.

The new airports in the Middle East & Asia on the other hand have radical ultra-modern designs that are intended to make a statement that they have arrived on the world stage. So while these new Asian & Middle Eastern airports might be amazing looking today we will probably look at them the same way we view the shiny reflective blue glass designs of the 1980s & early 1990s, the gold tinted glass buildings of the 1980s or the brutalist concrete architecture of the 1970s.

I’d rather have a classic, plain and simple looking design that draws on its heritage and is understated in its nature, rather than some elaborate and lavish, futuristic looking hyper modern design.

Let´s see how the "beauty" of this ever-downsizing airport will last.

Apparently facts are not valuable here. The truth is that the scale of the airport has shrunk again, again and again. It is obvious that hypebole such as the airport is the one and only intergalatic gateway that shines with its eternal beauty is only valued here.

Yeah the airport is a bit too small for these days even there are possibilities to extend it. I think they didnt want to build an oversized airport. "The smaller the better" seems to be very popular here in my opinion. Airports should be for the future and not only for now.

Now they´re arguing about the appearing noise from the flight routes over Berlin.
But nobody cares about noisy lawn-mower which are running the whole summer.

^ The airport will be able to support the amount of passengers that is expected for a few years after the opening (the Terminal is bigger now than initial planned), there is place for up to two Satellites and it is legally allowed to continue to use the current Terminals (e.g. for Ryanair and Easyjet). I don't see why the airport is too small for 'these days'.

Which facts? Care to elaborate and support your claims with any sources? Judgeing from your triple use of 'again, three different from three different points in time that would be. I suppose you can't though, which just proves my point - seems you simply have a personal problem with anything that is related to Berlin, making it difficult for you to add anything of value apart from self-claimed and otherwhise unsupported 'facts'. It's a pity there's no *plonk*-functionality implemented in the current Forum Software.
