Zaha Hadid’s massive ‘starfish’ airport opens in Beijing


China has opened a vast, multibillion-dollar airport in the country’s capital, in the run-up to a major political anniversary. Less than five years after construction began, the 450bn yuan (£50bn) Daxing international airport was officially opened on Wednesday in a ceremony attended by the Chinese leader, Xi Jinping. China is preparing to celebrate its National Day on 1 October, marking 70 years since the founding of the People’s Republic of China, against the backdrop of unrest in Hong Kong and a flagging economy.
