The Beijing Daxing International Airport, designed by British-Iraqi architect Zaha Hadid, will have the cutting-edge technology implemented in security and immigration screening

Located about 50 kilometres (31 miles) south of central Beijing, the second airport will relieve congestion at the capital city's existing international airport in the north-east of Beijing

Set to open in 2019, the gigantic airport is made up of 1.6 million cubic metres of concrete, 52,000 tonnes of steel and spans a total 47 square kilometres (18 square miles)

The design of the new airport focuses on creating a feeling of space and openness, which is reflected in the flowing lines of the roof and the lack of pillars inside the building
