Orlando International Airport’s (MCO) new Terminal C adds an extra 15 gates and a stunning Palm Court plaza that features a series of immersive art installations to the world’s seventh-largest airport. From its inception, art has been woven into Orlando International’s aesthetic, and the airport continues to put an emphasis on ensuring passengers have a visually stimulating travel experience.
Working with SACO®️, McLaren’s entertainment team provided engineering and structural analysis for three of those displays, “Windows on Orlando”, The “Monument Vault”, and “The Portal”.
“Windows on Orlando” is a large-scale video installation consisting of three giant displays, each 32 feet tall. The LED screens provide panoramic visuals of live-action scenes from around Central Florida.
The plaza’s main feature display, “Moment Vault” by Gentilhomme Studio, is a truly interactive multimedia experience that uses a series of cameras and video screens to bring travelers into the art. The structure consists of three curved double-sided, freestanding LED walls facing one another to create an immersive experience in the space encircled by the screens. Each video wall is gently curve and is framed with perforated sheet metal panels in freeform wavy shapes.
“The Portal” will feature oval helix structure suspended overhead in the Landside Concourse with patchwork of LED and mirror displays will be coming soon to the Orlando Airport.
