Video: Take a tour of Zaha Hadid Architects' newly opened Beijing Airport

Zaha Hadid Architects' star-shaped airport has opened in Beijing, located in the Daxing district 46km south of the city centre. 

Initially serving 45 million passengers per year, the Beijing Daxing International Airport will accommodate 72 million travellers by 2025 and is planned for further expansion to serve up to 100 million passengers and 4 million tonnes of cargo annually.

The design implements a spatial layout that is traditional to Chinese architecture where interconnected spaces are organised around a central courtyard.
