“The enhanced CTA is articulated with a polychromatic light ribbon that is synchronized with the entry pylons; the light ribbon defines the elevated roadway edge and is modulated with three-dimensional super-graphic terminal identifiers and 91 white sculptural light poles. The project amplifies at the airport’s midpoint and largest terminal, the Tom Bradley International Terminal, where a series of aerodynamic metallic canopies will replace the existing structures.”

Jed Zimmerman, AECOM principal and LAX Enhancements architectural project director, said:

“The LAX Enhancements project will dramatically improve the LAX traveler’s experience with a design that captures the spirit of Los Angeles. The design functions as a kit of parts that can be easily phased and built upon for all future enhancement projects.”
