LAX finally got its brand new Tom Bradley International Terminal yesterday, and the results are pretty stunning. Nice work, Fentress Architects! (*And Montalba Architects, who designed the Great Hall and some concession areas.) According to a press release, the new TBIT, with a roofline meant to mimic the waves of the Pacific, is "the largest public works project in the history of Los Angeles"! It's set up to accommodate jumbo jets, and it also features a three-story, 150,000-square-foot Great Hall that is decked out with millions of video screens (including a video-screened "clocktower"--see it all in action below), and also actually decent dining and retail options. Unless you're getting far out of town, you won't have too much opportunity to tour the new terminal, so check it out up above.
