In my opinion I'd have to say PHL. I just like the way all the terminal's are connected and all have A similar look.

Here's a vote for MCO. Very well lit, spacious, it is very comfortable to the eye.

Caribb - hopefully you mean CDG2 and not CDG1....! Would be worried about your architecture style otherwise!  Smile

From the inside, DXB (Dubai) would also be a strong contender, well laid out with the duty free area in the centre and the long piers out to the gates at each side.

Also HKG looks stunning, very bright interior.

YVR is a great looking airport, at least inside. Lots of great artwork. DEN is in a great location. YYC is undergoing a lot of renovation, but being able to see the Canadian Rockies while you wait for a plane is worth the wait.

For us that have been to Koh Samui (USM), Thailand, I'll guess there is no doubt that this little airport with its small open bungalows is the best looking airport in the world, and in my opinion an airport that you shouldn't hesitate to visit if you get the chanse.

Is there a main terminal/tower combo anywhere in the world more distinctive? Major cool factor.

MCO is very nice inside but it can be confusing. Having opposite ends of the same building called Terminal A and Terminal B is not a great idea. An example of the confusion it can cause happened to me a few months ago. I was supposed to pick up someone who was returning a rental car to the Alamo drop-off location. What neither of us knew was that Alamo (and other rental companies) have drop off points at both ends of the building. My friend took the car to the Terminal A end, while I followed the first signs I saw, which happened to be Terminal B. The consequens was that we spent the best part of an hour patiently waiting for each other. I wasn't worried as I knew my friend was never on time for anything . He finally made inquiries and we eventually got together.
I've had a similar experience meeting flights - with the arrivals board showing a flight coming to a Terminal A gate, and then the plane actually arriving at Terminal B.

I may be a little biased, but my vote goes for Denver International Airport, which is both beautiful and functional.

Other airports high on the list for architectural beauty are Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur, and Seoul-Incheon in my opinion; however, I haven't actually seen these airports in person, only in pictures.
