New Abu Dhabi Airport Terminal A in Photos

The most remarkable feature of the international gateway is the shape of the building – patterned like undulating sand dunes and based on the concept of “pearl in the desert”. Terminal A features a long, flowing curved roof that resembles a shell, while natural light and green spaces dominate its interior to create a strong sense of space and openness.

The symmetrical high ceilings enhance the sprawling and seemingly lightweight feel inside the terminal, as columns and supporting arches are placed unobtrusively to enhance the free movement of people.
