Airport terminal designed to handle up to 35 million passengers annually and turn Madrid into a major European hub

Madrid’s Barajas Airport, by Richard Rogers Partnership in collaboration with Estudio Lamela, features a kilometre-long undulating steel roof, shaped in cross-section to resemble a bird in flight. This roof is supported on a bank of central columns painted in the colours of the spectrum and is punctuated by a series of roof lights providing natural lighting 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.
