From Novem­ber 16 to 18, 2016, the frolic crowds of the buzzing Ger­man cap­i­tal will be re­placed by de­ter­mined-look­ing and well-dressed for­eign­ers, busily parad­ing in and out of stores with plans and mod­els un­der one arm. Safe to say that IN­SIDE— The Fes­ti­val of In­te­ri­ors—is the ren­dez-vous of in­te­rior ar­chi­tec­ture and de­sign. Joined by the World Ar­chi­tec­ture Fes­ti­val, this year’s IN­SIDE will be held at the Arena Ber­lin, where visi­tors can take in­spi­ra­tion from 2,000 ar­chi­tects and ex­plore in­te­ri­ors, ex­te­ri­ors, de­signer con­struc­tions and other cre­ative hous­ing de­signs of the fu­ture. At IN­SIDE’s heart is a global awards pro­gram cel­e­brat­ing state-of-the-art de­sign of ab­so­lute im­por­tance. The star-stud­ded short­list in­cludes Brazil­ian Stu­dio MK27, Sin­ga­porean Wow Ar­chi­tects as well as the Chi­nese stu­dio Neru&Hu, which was re­cently noted for in­stalling a con­tin­u­ous cloth­ing rail through the Comme Moi fash­ion brand flag­ship store in Shang­hai.

The ac­claimed ar­chi­tect Zaha Ha­did left us in March 2016, but her pro­lific oeu­vre will live on for fu­ture gen­er­a­tions to come. Among her mon­u­men­tal en­deav­ours is the new Bei­jing Air­port ter­mi­nal build­ing, which tops the Guardian's list of seven won­ders-to-be in the mod­ern world. Pre­lim­i­nar­ily planned for com­ple­tion in 2018, Zaha Ha­did Ar­chi­tects and ADP In­geniérie—the joint de­sign team in charge of its con­cept de­sign—have now an­nounced its in­au­gu­ra­tion in 2019. And the project al­ready im­presses in scale: a ground area of 700,000 square me­tres al­low­ing for an an­nual ca­pac­ity of 45 mil­lion pas­sen­gers ex­pand­able to 72 mil­lion, as well as 2 mil­lion tons of cargo. The es­ti­mated cost: 86 bil­lion CNY (10 bil­lion EUR). Lo­cated just 60 km from the cap­i­tal, this flex­i­ble and pro­gres­sive ter­mi­nal leaves Bei­jing un­af­fected by air traf­fic. The new air­port will also fa­cil­i­tate di­rect con­nec­tions with lo­cal and na­tional rail­ways, in­clud­ing high-speed ser­vices.
