This is the new International Airport in China, boasts 3X the size of the existing terminals at 450,000 square meters.... and it is pretty awesome looking to say the least.

The impressive design is the work of (husband and wife architects) Massimiliano and Doriana Fuksas.
It has 200 check-in counters, 200 shops and 62 boarding gates, and can accomodate the largest passenger planes in operation. It is designed to handle 45-million passengers a year by 2020. Studio Fuksas looked at the shapes of various living creatures when planning the layout of the comples. "The concept of the plan for Terminal 3 of Shenzen Bao'an international airport evokes the image of a manta ray, a fish that breathes and changes its own shape, undergoes variation, [and] turns into a bird to celebrate the emotion and fantasy of flight," says the architects.
