Uplifted Ground at the Austin Airport was selected and recognized as part of the Americans for the Arts 2016 Public Art Network Year in Review; see here. The project was selected from 260 applications submitted nationwide. Congratulations to the City of Austin and Austin Bergstrom International Airport!
The project was also covered in the summer 2016 edition of
Precast Solutions; see here (cover, inside cover and pages 18-25).
Also, if you have not seen it yet, here is the time lapse video of the installation:
Uplifted Ground at the Austin Airport is a sculptural landscape at the core of a pedestrian walkway connecting the terminal to the car rental facility. The artwork is an integral part of the structural design for the pedestrian walkway, assisting with the conversion of an existing parking deck into the equivalent of a pedestrian bridge. The project embodies several interrelated concepts including geometries and transitions based on local geological formations, Texas minerals, and patterning from aerial photography throughout the state.
