Building in Motion at Brisbane Airport

Recent visitors to Brisbane Airport will have noticed the bottlenecks caused by the newly completed car park at the domestic terminal but it is not the cars that are backing up – the delays are caused by people stopping in their tracks to understand what they are looking at. 5000 square meters of rippling steel is not something easily ignored.

One side of the new car park is covered with thousands of small aluminium panels resting on tiny pins which respond to the slightest change in air movement. The result is a fluid metal curtain which allows you to ‘see’ the breeze. Designed by Ned Kahn, an American artist who describes the work as a ‘kinetic façade’ referencing the Brisbane river, the wall is a delightful and engaging welcome to the city.
