So you prefer boring architecture like 95% of all buildings in Belgium? Come on. If you go to Holland (or France, or Germany, or...), it's amazing how many great new architecture you see, while in Belgium it's the opposite.
I'm very happy about this (proposed) design. Have you seen the inside? It looks amazing.
Well, first of all I am not into this kind of futuristic Star Wars-design, but that's just subject to our own taste of course. More importantly though, I prefer a modern, light design that fits into the surrounding area. This proposal doesn't resemble any of the buildings it connects, not the terminal, nor the A-pier.
At the existing airport you already see some sort of clash between different generations of constructing, Although opening the A-pier was only about 7 years later then opening the terminal and the B-pier, the latter is more a to-the-point, straight building while the first is more curvacious and lighter. The proposed design squeezes another kind of infrastructure in between the two: a sharp futuristic design which would fit nicely on a completely new terminal, but not in between two other buildings who differ heavily from each other already.
I would prefer this proposal:
As modern, as functional as the other proposal, but albeit being something different as well, not as sharp a clash with the current infra as the one from UN studios.
But that's just my opinion.
