基于城市飞速发展(rapid development)的需求(requirement)，也出于对旅游城市形象(city image)的现代化(modern)诠释(explanation)，上饶三清山机场设立(situated)在赣东山脉之间，当地山地气候(mountain climate)特征显著，雨水丰沛，水文资源优厚。周边环境地处山脉，使得建筑形体的屋面肌理、蜿蜒的屋脊线、与挑檐起伏跌宕恰似山丘，整体与自然环境形成呼应。建筑语言充分诠释了地方的自然及人文特色，使之成为展现国际化及地域性的窗口，诠释了上饶三清山的独特魅力(unique )。
Based on the requirements of the city’s rapid development and also the visualized expression of its image as a tourist city, Shangrao Sanqingshan situated in the mountains east of Jiangxi province. As a typical mountain climate with plenty of rain, the water resources there is rich. The airport architectural feature、winding ridge and overhangs are like surrounded mountains up and down which also reflected the natural environment around it. Its architectural languages fully interpret the natural and cultural features of the local place, made it to become a stage that could show the mixture of international and regional culture and at the same time explained its unparallel enchantment.
Structuralized as symmetric, along the axes of the building, architectural languages naturally bring the sight from outdoor to indoor. In order to enlarge its surrounding area and search for the connections between inner and outer spaces, inspired from Taoism culture, the indoor space are decorated with elegant tonal and simple colors — black、white and grey.

【 Elements/Empty Mountains With Fresh Rain 】
The three skylight wells of the architecture provide inspirations and elements of the interior space. Seasonal changes、rolling hills and blue sky could be seen through its huge glass curtain walls and thus the airport becomes a media that connect human and nature.
The celling was decorated like ripples that created by the rain dropping on the lake and such abstract approaches were designed to connect the three skylight wells. To break the traditional form of public transit hub and build a neat and bright environment, designer applied metal net and aluminum quadrate pipe in the celling’s decoration. These circular graphics were like a metaphor that reflected its surrounding environment and created an atmosphere of “empty mountain with fresh rain” of the airport.

【Departure/Arrival Hall Of The First Floor】
As a place to show the first impression of Shangrao city, departure and arrival Hall was set on the first floor of the airport. Opposite to the glass curtain wall, anodic alumite tile was used to decorate the main wall of the hall and thus form a contrast between the dark and bright area. Designers try to create a space that could soaked into the surrounding area and to find out whether there are possibilities for the infiltration and integration of the architecture、the space and the scenery.
