From the architect. The proposed Terminal 1 is a linear building of two principal levels, with a central hall of 400 m long and 170 m large that links, by glass footbridges, to the embarkment gallery of 1400m long and 28 contact plane places. Elevated roadways arch over the water and the winged appearance of the terminal buildings are evident to approaching travellers.

Besides, this new Chinese Airport is symbolic of the rising economic power of the“Middle Kingdom”.
