CLT Airport Terminal A Expansion
Charlotte Douglas International Airport just opened its new 230,000 sq ft expansion to Terminal A, adding nine new gates and lots of technological updates. The dynamic architectural volume is lighted with double stripes of direct view LED strips that curve along with the ceiling, accentuating the building's form when inside, and creating a strong visual from the outside.
Video walls (by Los Angeles artist Refik Anadol) in the new terminal and the new connector tie to exterior color changing fins along the exterior face of the connector and flush mounted color changing strips on the interior columns. The lighting is programmed to coordinate with the digital imagery of the walls - imagery that abstractly visualizes simple data such as arrivals, departures and baggage handling in a spectacular way.
