Santa Monica Museum Of Flying To Conclude Its “Now Boarding” Exhibition Sunday:

Santa Monica’s Museum of Flying will conclude its first-ever museum exhibition of airport architecture, Now Boarding: Fentress Airports + The Architecture of Flight this Sunday, Aug. 25.

The exhibition, which opened to the public on April 3, will be moving on to other international venues.

The museum exhibition takes visitors on a multi-media journey through the past, present, and future of airport architecture, focusing on the work of Curtis Fentress and Fentress Architects, the global architectural design firm he founded.

Now Boarding examines airport design with an entire section devoted to LAX and the much anticipated $1.9 billion expansion of the Tom Bradley International Terminal.

The exhibition was curated by acclaimed architectural curator Donald Albrecht, and exhibits a 24-foot scale model of the new terminal, in addition to animations, renderings, photographs, and other architectural elements.

As the architect and creative force behind some of the world’s most celebrated airports, Curtis Fentress is known for designs that transform the air travel experience and embody local geography and culture.

Nowhere is this better illustrated than in the dramatic changes soon to be unveiled at LAX where the new international terminal’s wave-like shape evokes the beach lifestyle of Los Angeles.

Other notable Fentress designs include Incheon International Airport in South Korea and Denver International Airport.
