See The Amazing Photos Of The World Largest Airport In China by Charlesdonald(m): 4:19pm On Dec 20, 2019
Reportedly costing $63 billion, Beijing Daxing International Airport (PKX) opened on 25 September.

The opening ceremony, attended by President Xi Jinping, came just days before the country marks the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China with its National Day on 1 October. This is the world's biggest airport.

Nicknamed the “starfish” and designed by the architecture team of the late Zaha Hadid, the terminal building alone covers 700,000 sq m. It’s expected to become one of the world’s busiest airports, initially handling up to 45 million passengers per year and 100 million after further expansion. This is intended to relieve congestion at the capital’s one existing airport.

Zaha Hadid Architects say the futuristic design is inspired by principles of traditional Chinese architecture, in which interconnected spaces are organized around a central courtyard. In this case, the farthest boarding gate is less than an eight-minute walk from the security checkpoint. At Beijing's new airport, the farthest gate is an eight-minute walk from the security checkpoint.

The terminal was built with renewable energy in mind. Solar panels are installed throughout the airport to provide a minimum capacity of at least 10MW. Heating is provided by both a ground-source heat pump and waste heat recovery.

The architects explain the airport also collects rainwater and its water management system “employs the natural storage, natural permeation and natural purification of up to 2.8 million cubic meters of water in new wetlands, lakes and streams to prevent flooding and counter the summer ‘heat island’ effect on the local microclimate.”

Zaha Hadid Architects created the futuristic design

China is set to overtake the US as the world’s largest aviation market by 2030, according to the International Air Transport Association (IATA) – fuelled by a growing, more affluent middle class.


Daxing is just one of 74 airports planned by the Civil Aviation Administration of China, to make a total of 260 by 2020.
