when two systems collide

Designed by Studio Fuksas, the new terminal at Shenzhen Bao’an International Airport is encapsulated by a double-layer façade system with a field of hexagons. Although the terminal may have an intriguing appearance from far away, the collision between the façade and the gate suggests that the parametric skin fails to address the punctuations required by one of fundamental elements of an airport - the jet bridge.
