SeaTac International Airport: Xpanded Present

Project Location: Seattle, WA

The sculptural screen is the entry piece to the SeaTac airport and integrates sculptural concepts with important infrastructural needs for security and glare mitigation.  The screen is composed of transforming folded aluminum fins that are inspired by airplane wing forms.  The panels appear to rotate and move upwards to create a reading of flight and transformation.  Openings between the panels allow vehicles to see refracted light movement as the train speeds through the area.
