This new terminal is arguably the largest and most advanced airport building in the world – a celebration of aviation and poetry in flight. With its dragon-like form and traditional Chinese colors and symbols, it has become an awe-inspiring gateway to Beijing.

The Incheon International Airport Transportation Center is an icon of dynamism, embracing culture and flight, and invoking the future. The structural form and composition symbolizes flight and dyamism. The steel truss structure rises from the ground and vaults ove the hall. The long graceful curves of the skeletal roof express the fluid form of a plane in take-off. Resting on top is the futuristic pod-like flight control centre. With its glass belly, it acts as an aerofoil for the natural ventilation of the interior hall below.
