Inspired by the shape of a manta ray, it lies low and spread outwards in such a way that denotes stealth and style. Part of a larger plan to improve the infrastructure of Shenzhen, which enjoys the rare status of Special Economic Zone in the People's Republic of China, the new terminal ushers in some exciting changes.

Designed by the Italian Studio Fuksas, the Bao'an International Airport Terminal 3 is meant to "celebrate the emotion and fantasy of a flight," as stated by the firm. This is carried out through the entire structure by way of airy open spaces and tons of natural light. A honeycomb pattern of skylights dot the exterior to achieve this refreshing effect.
