Light and material work together to create a visual rhythm and a sense of directional movement, flowing through the International Passenger’s Tunnel at McCarran International Airport. Graceful curving lines of light are concealed within the metal panels wrapping from wall to ceiling, fully integrating the lighting hardware into the architectural fabric of the connecting tunnel. Brightness envelops the passenger from all surfaces, enlivening the journey through the subterranean passageway.
