Large projects such as Daxing Beijing Airport and Hong Kong Airport arise from the need to have efficient, sustainable spaces that can cope with the monumental flow of passengers and visitors. Their designs are engineered to meet these expectations, but also, since airports are one of the doors to the nation, these centers can not be limited only to the functional area. This is why aesthetics, architecture and attention to detail are also justified, which ultima- tely aims to provide a few touches of culture to each visitor.
