Our new monthly Spotlight is an addition to our newsletter that highlights current events and developments in the architecture and design community. We hope you find it engaging!
Los Angeles-based Aviation and Transportation architect with HOK, Justin Wortman, wrote a LinkedIn article titled, “You Can’t Spell Airport Without Art.” Wortman uses diverse examples of airports around the US boasting exceptional art programs, with a special focus on the recently opened Terminal B at New York’s LaGuardia Airport.

This article discusses the impact of artwork in public spaces and architectural settings as an innovative and aesthetic branding tool. Given some uncertainty about how air travel will evolve over time, Wortman speaks to three key questions about the future of public art in airports:
- What new opportunities for public art do you see in the architecture and design field?
- In your view, what are the greatest advantages or disadvantages of artwork as a tool for designing public spaces?
- What new and innovative ways are you incorporating artwork and imagery into your design of public spaces
