From the architect. Terminal is designed as the first part of the future big terminal. Provides a construcive there is an opportunity to expand the building on both sides, depending on the needs. Aesthetics of the terminal is like a part of a hugde mechanism.

Despite the fact that in terminal acts the customs border control, flight security, police, medical services and commercial, food and financial companies, the function scheme of a building is very simple and clear. The passengers wont experience the additional stress, wich leads in traveling by aircraft.

Inside the neutral ascetic glass, metal, concrete interior, which is adorned with the only bright detail- huge illuminators in departure and arrival halls.

Tiny and cosy, always good to come back there:) Looks very cold from the pictures, but it's very different feeling when you're there. Probably because of the people, you never see places like airports empty...

Ha-ha-ha... Gimme a break, shutting comments down doesn't make this communist-like building from the past any better. LOL.

you are just a hater. 4 comments and no constructive arguments? Your personal opinion about ugliness of 70's brutalism... What about Alison and Peter Smithson? Robin Hood Gardens supported even by Hadid... What about bunch of beautiful socialist brutalism examples? Brutalism is similar all around the world and most of mistakes was done with social engineering, but not with architecture... you are mixing political context and architectural quality of these structures.
And finaly, only few deatails in this airport are connected with real image of "brutalism"...

in case I havent noticed? I am from a former soviet republic

So what? Maybe there is some things which reminds of old soviet buildings, but not too much. Is this glimpse of ascetic brutality bad? Does it mean that this is bad architecture?

Koolhaas works obviously are affected by soviet constructivism form 20's and he was talking about that few times. They even look like from 20's. So? Does it mean that Koolhaas team is not talented? It's 2010 for Christ sake! LOL.
Dear Fufu, you need to grow up.

Boring 70s Soviet style building. Even great photography couldn't help. What a shame, couldn't they just hire some talented creative team? What a joke... it looks obsolete already, imagine in 20 yrs.

I dont think its 70s soviet style, maybe there are a few things in common but not that much

geras darbas, tik pirma fotografija nustebino.
as suprantu, kad spec foto objektyvai brangus malonumas, bet yra ir paprastesniu budu susitvarkyti su pateikimu. istiesinti pirmos nuotraukos perspektyva photoshope man uztruko maziau nei minute, o rezultatas akivaizdus.
