Hong Kong International Airport proudly displays its 5-star rating by Skytrax. Its vast roof canopy filters the light and promises the sky to the millions of people who pass through the airport every year. And the best is yet to come, as suggested by the ambitious ongoing works in Terminal 1 and the Cathay Pacific Lounge.
This glass-and-steel giant – an internationally renowned architectural feat – exudes spirituality. The general design of the hub was overseen by the illustrious architectural firm Foster + Partners, renowned for the Great Court at the British Museum, L’Ombrière, the events pavilion with its reflective canopy-roof in the Vieux Port of Marseille, and the Millau Viaduct, among others.
These spectacular urban theaters create a dialog between the circulation of users and daily life. Reinventing the passer-by’s experience is written in the firm’s DNA. And this place, with its head-spinning flow of passengers, is equally stunning for the hygiene and comfort of its restrooms: a determining factor for travelers. A strong trend which from now on cannot be ignored!
