Airport Francisco Sa Carneiro
|Architect||Arq. João Leal|
Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) is the sixth busiest airport in the world and the third busiest in the United States serving nearly 63.7 million passengers – including 17 million international passengers – in 2012. Visitors are drawn to Los Angeles to experience everything from the area’s temperate coastal climate and beaches to the glitz and glamour of Hollywood movie-making.
Those themes are readily apparent in the design of the $1.9-billion New Tom Bradley International Terminal (TBIT) at LAX, which was dedicated in September 2013. The new 1.3-million square-foot terminal addition features a dynamic design by Denver-headquartered Fentress Architects, which was charged with dramatically improving the passenger experience in a way that would capture the vibrant spirit of Los Angeles.
