The Art of Airport Architecture
This week’s photos comes from the beautiful Madrid Barajas Airport, Terminal 4, Spain. It is modern, huge and Breathtaking!
My son was leaving for London after staying in Madrid with me for a few days. We took a taxi to Madrid airport and unfortunately was dropped off at the wrong terminal. Luckily we heard that there was a ‘free’ shuttle bus departing every 10 minutes to take passengers to Terminal 4.
I was not aware of what to expect, however I fully appreciated the beautiful architecture and it’s bright, cheerful and warm colours. The architect Richard Rogers was inspired by the silhouette of a bird in flight. You can see this reflected in the bamboo-clad ceiling waves of graceful curves and the heavy supporting columns take off in oblique directions, like tree trunks and branches rising to meet the forest canopy.
Be sure to take a quick tour to Barajas if you’re ever in Madrid, it’s well worth a visit!
