A comprehensive look at the newly built Shenzhen Bao'an International Airport designed by Fuksas Architects, with its pioneering, ecofriendly, and socially sound design. This is the first book to document the highly innovative Terminal 3 at Shenzhen Bao'an International Airport in China, scheduled for completion in 2013. Shenzhen is one of China's most important industrial locations as well as a very popular tourist destination in China. In 2008, the Italian architects Massimiliano and Doriana Fuksas (M Fuksas) won the international competition for the extension of the airport with the design of Terminal 3. This book contains never-before-seen sketches, models, renderings, drawings, and all-new photography of the building as well as an interview with the architect. The terminal, which resembles an airplane from above, has been designed specifically to take into account environmental and socioeconomic factors. It is the first airport terminal certified to the National Green Building Star Label in China.
