Designed by the practice of Paul Andreu Architecte, the Shanghai Pudong International Airport has a modern design that features an impressive ceiling attracting the attention of the visitors with its unique style.
The Terminal 1 building has two main levels and a linear geometry with a large central hall as the main attraction spreading over a surface of 400 meters in length and 170 meters in width. This central hall is connected to the embarking gallery through glass footbridges.
The gallery itself has a length of 1400 meters and there are 28 contact plane places. The exterior design is reminiscent of a set of wings and there are elevated roadways above the water to make the purpose of the building evident to the passers-by.
The airport also acts as a landmark and symbol of the economic growth of the region and of the Middle Kingdom as a whole.
