But web users in China, where the airport is to be built, are not impressed.
Hadid’s stunning building design has almost no straight lines – but is embarrassingly being compared to a vagina as a result.
Those sharing the concept photos of the new Beijing Daxing International Airport are outraged by the design – and are taking the chance to ridicule Hadid, who passed away from a heart attack at the end of March this year, aged 65.
While the project is still a few years away from completion – with the current date set in September 2019 – web users are wondering if none of the architects on the design team managed to spot the glaring resemblance.
One illustration has been posted online that shows the outline of a woman, with the centre of the airport as her privates.
