A floating feather was the visual reference for the airport terminal that Chinese architecture studio MAD is designing in the city of Changchun, Jilin province, China.

Terminal 3 at Changchun Longjia International Airport will have a distinctive fan-shaped form, which is intended to resemble "a feather floating in the breeze".

Once complete, the building will measure 270,000 square meters and become the biggest air transport terminal in Jilin province – accommodating 22 million passengers per year.
