Singapore - Terminal 3
At the Singapore Terminal 3, the transformation is complete. Opened in January 2008, this is truly the new model for air-travel - the airport as shopping mall. The departure hall is typical high-ceiling open plan concept, designed to get travellers through check-in as quicky as possible. Once you have checked in, the shops and food outlets are conveniently located on the mezzanine level, accessible by escalators. The layout and design are even modelled after high-end shopping malls, with wide aisles and tastesfully understated decoration. Even the departure lounge is a shopping paradise full of shops and all kinds of concessions.
The verticle green wall is one of the main features of this airport. It is basically a set of wireframes planted with different types of creepers.
