In order to accommodate the large amount of air traffic that will be flowing into China for the forthcoming 2008 Olympics, the Chinese government has commissioned a new multi-billion dollar airport terminal. The construction is slated to be completed by February 2008, just in time for the summer games. Designed by Foster + Partners, this new structure is the most technologically advanced airport in the world. Foster + Partners claims that this airport will provide a defining passenger experience as well as a level of operational efficiency and sustainability not found anywhere else. Beijing’s new international airport terminal will be the gateway to the city as it welcomes athletes and visitors from around the world to the twenty-ninth Olympiad in 2008.
