Beijing Capital Airport- Terminal 3

Completed in 2007, just in time for the 2008 Olympics, Terminal 3 at the Beijing Capital Airport comprises two terminal buildings. The result of a visionary collaboration with NACO, Netherlands Airport Consultants, and the ARUP engineering group, Terminal 3 is expected to service 60 million passengers in 2015. Massive in scale, Beijing Capital Airport is the second largest airport terminal in the world, and the globe’s third largest building by area, covering 986,000 square-meters. From its inception, Terminal 3 was designed to make a cultural statement through spirit and style. The curtain wall and skylight system in Terminal 3 are sheathed in Valspar’s Fluropon coating, creating an elegant contrast with its roof that glows at night with red, yellow and orange lights, colors associated with China’s heritage.
