KLIA Architecture

Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA), Malaysia.

I enjoy editing the photos I took more than doing the architecture research itself. This is something I can't deny. Above is a picture of one of the many domes inside the main terminal of KLIA. 

and another dome..

and another dome with a gigantic window.

The architecture of the airport is abstract-symbolic, the abstraction deriving from modern architecture' s idea of abstract (geometric), and the symbolism taken from Islamic tradition. The theme of the airport is "airport in the forest, forest in the airport", because it is surrounded by palm trees, and man made rain-forest is planted inside the Satellite Building garden area.
