    While nobody enjoys hanging around an airport for hours thanks to delays or long layovers, it's safe to say that once you're past security, the experience has greatly improved in recent years. Airports have spent millions revamping their terminals, and while most of the changes are functional, some of that money has gone toward improving both design and amenities. Airport architects have transformed once-bland spaces into light-filled, inspiring areas filled with everything from indoor tropical gardens to massive art installations. The buildings themselves can also be works of art, often inspired by their surroundings, whether they be the Pacific Ocean, prairie lands, or a series of rocks.

    Nice assortment of stylish airports, yes, Changi and Barajas are wonderful, I like BCN too, plus Suvarnabhumi, the design features are outstanding.

    Not to forget @ DUB, the new T2 is gorgeous, yet functional / efficient, that's a great combination. Overall, stylish, it's subjective.

    I can't take this seriously. WLG (specifically international part of the terminal) as #2? Not only do the pair of diseased balls look bad, but inside the layout is impractical for both arriving and departing passengers. Departing passengers have struggles due to gate area too crowded with seating to cope with queues for boarding, and typically there are 3-4 departing flights at the same time so there aren't enough seats and queues merge. Arriving passengers face internal stairs on some gates and passageways that are narrow and double back on themselves.
