2 days ago I posted the airport in Shenzhen, today I present another architecturally interesting Chinese travel hub: the Shanghai Pudong International Airport.
It seems that particularly buildings highly frequented by foreigners get a special prestige treatment to leave a positive impression. Anyway, the sculptural roof construction is actually highly functional carrying a lot of weight by using only a minimum of material. It incorporates a special variant of a fish belly girder...the name describes vividly its form.
