But wouldn't it be more comfortable horizontally?

The text on this paper towel dispenser in Guangzhou's Baiyun International Airport suggests that China's programme to improve the English on signs in Beijing for the forthcoming Olympics has not been extended to other provinces.

Incidentally, why do all new airport terminals look as if they were designed by Norman Foster? (or perhaps they are all designed by Norman Foster?)

Because Norman Foster has nothing better to do.

And toilets in all new airports stink. Maybe Normy likes it that way.

It may not be true that all buildings with a glass roof were deisgned by Normal Foster, but I believe it is correct to say that all buldings designed by Norman "One Trick Pony" Foster have a glass roof.
