To leave is to arrive

Due to open next month, this staggering new airport is as likely to be a destination in itself as a mere jumping off point. The gleaming, cathedral-like spectacle offered by the interior spaces feels designed expressly to excite a sense of elevation and "uplift" in the visitor. Seeming to eschew virtually every characteristic element of conventional airport design, it is hard to imagine the experience of flying into or out of Terminal 3 at Shenzhen’s Bao’an International hub as anything other than breathtaking. Whether the actual operation and day to day infrastructure can deliver the sublime as surely as the space does remains to be seen.
