Hong Kong Airport now has two enormous architectural glass artworks. They have recently been installed in the new 'Midfield Concourse'. One feature is in the Departures area and one in the Arrivals.
The Arrivals feature is a 30 metre long back-lit red and yellow abstract painting in glass. The surface of the glass is full of texture, matching and sometimes in contrast to the large brushstroke elements of the design.
The Departures feature is all blues and pinks, a full forty metres long, with two escalators riding upwards towards the centre walkway where you can actually stand in front of the glass.
