The highly anticipated new terminal at Shenzhen Bao'an International Airport, Guangdong, China, opened last week. The futuristic building in the southern Chinese city replaces three airport terminals, which ceased operation on Wednesday following three test runs of the new facility. Designed by the Italian Studio Fuksas, the 500,000 sq.m Terminal 3 has been shaped to look like a manta ray and features a striking internal and external double 'skin' honeycomb motif that wraps the structure. The terminal is 1.5 km long and the roof spans up to 80 m.
