Meacham Airport, Fort Worth, TX

Recognizing that this facility will be used primarily for aviation related offices and classrooms rather than as a main passenger terminal, I began to consider the various functions that will occur within the building and their relationships to one another. “Paperwork” is a term synonymous with both office and school environments and images of workers seated at desks behind stack of papers or school children throwing their year’s assignments into the air on the last day of school immediately started drifting through my mind. Seeing the potential to tap into this dynamic and enhance the social connectivity within the space, I envisioned hundreds of folded shapes soaring through the lobby as an expression of the fluidity and rhythms of conversation. Visibly prominent from the adjacent highway the aviary-like installation is subtly animated by means of a programmed LED lighting system.
