BEIJING DAXING AIRPORT (PKX)
designed by Zaha Hadid Architects
When I had to be in Beijing for an assignment I made sure to fly through the new Zaha Hadid designed Daxing Airport in the south of the city.
For now it serves mostly domestic flights, and therefor quite empty still. Which made it good condition to photograph this massive new airport.
