Aeropuerto Internacional de Madrid - Barajas, España.

Madrid - Barajas International Airport, Spain.

The Madrid Barajas Airport (MAD) is the busiest airport in Spain and connects millions of passengers to domestic and international destinations. It was opened in 1933 though the first paved runway was only built in 1944. Barajas serves as the gateway to the Iberian peninsula and as a key link between Europe and Latin America. Since 1991, passenger traffic has grown by over 33 million, making it one of the busiest airports in Europe.

Terminal 4 was designed by the famous architects Antonio Lamela and Richard Rogers and won the 2006 Royal Institute of British Architects Stirling Prize. The architects placed a flowing canopy atop parallel circulation systems, supported by twin diverging columns. Light and transparency punch through the hill-like roof structure. The terminal features a clear progression of spaces for departing and arriving travellers. The building's legible, modular design creates a repeating sequence of waves formed by vast wings of prefabricated steel. Supported on central 'trees', the great roof is punctuated by roof lights providing carefully controlled natural light throughout the upper level of the terminal. Light-filled 'canyons' divide the parallel floors that accommodate the various stages of passenger processing - from point of arrival, through check-in and passport and security controls to departure lounges and finally to the aircraft.

Φα-ντα-στι-κή, Ιορδάνη! Για σκέψου να ήταν και HDR! Δεν γνωρίζω, βέβαια, κατά πόσο προτιμάς την συγκεκριμένη τεχνική...

Στην αρχή, νόμιζα ότι ήταν ένα φουτουριστικό εκθεσιακό κέντρο που φιλοξενεί εκθέσεις υψηλής τεχνολογίας ή/και ψηφιακά παιχνίδια... αλλά είναι αεροδρόμιο! Απίστευτη αρχιτεκτονική..
