• Brisbane Airport gets a new classy and environment friendly multi-storey car park

  • 14371_2_brisbane2.jpgAirports seem to grow larger, and some of them also turn greener. At least that’s what the new Domestic Terminal at Brisbane, Australia aims to be. And for that the international design studio Urban Art Projects (UAP) have collaborated with artist Ned Kahn to give the Brisbane Airport Corporation an eight-storey kinetic public art project, which with replace their short-term multi-level car park. American artist Ned Kahn is will use natural elements like wind and light into his art for the 5000 sq m kinetic frontage for the short-term car park.

    The car park will seem to sway and ripple from one end at the outside, thanks to the 250,000 aluminum blowing wind. The insides will be a stunning display of kaliedscope style delicate light and shadow patterns projected on to the walls through the sunlight that will pass through. This design aims to provide both ventilation and shade inside the car park.
