The design shape of Terminal building is insipired from Aerodynamics.
Aerodynamics is the study of how gases interact with moving bodies. Because the gas that we encounter most is air, aerodynamics is primarily concerned with the forces of drag and lift, which are caused by air passing over and around solid bodies. basically it is inspired by movement of vehicles that incounter the air flow against thier movement direction.
