ODD BITS: Opening soon -- a stylish new terminal at Heathrow airport

A stylish new terminal designed by Spanish architect Luis Vidal will open at London's Heathrow Airport on June 4, 2014. Called "The Queen's Terminal" the $4 billion facility was created with "the needs of the individual passenger at its heart, and with sustainability as a guiding principle." It has lots of natural light, more space, and better flow than we're used to seeing in airports.
