URS developed an award-winning design incorporating Chinese cultural elements, while capturing the spirit of aviation, for the $2 billion expansion of Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport in southern China. The airport is one of the major gateways to China and the second busiest in the country.
URSí design has been highly praised for respecting the culture and landscape of China while establishing the airport as a modern center for commerce and transportation. The symmetry of the sweeping metal roofs and arched skylights resonate with the grandeur found in classical Chinese architecture.
