What it’s like to travel through the incredible new airport in Istanbul

Istanbul’s new aviation darling is a stunner. Beneath the enormous vaulted canopy is a vast space of colour and patterns inspired by Istanbul old and new: the curves are inspired by the city’s famed domed mosques and baths; the space-age transit hall follows the shape of the Bosphorus Strait; and the control tower is designed in the shape of a tulip, Turkey’s national flower.
