Cesar Pelli‚Äôs National Airport in Washington D.C. called for the installation of 30 pieces of art, each in a designated area of the concourse, as part of its Architectural Enhancement Program. Chosen from a pool of 350 artists, the Bloomer Studio designed and fabricated a leafy trellis that sprouts from metal members along an expansive glass wall at one end of the airport. Bloomer’s hand-hammered aluminum leaves attach to stems and larger trunks, creating a flowing and masterful design that reaches up to the ceiling. The leaves also neatly swing out on hinged frames to facilitate cleaning the glass wall. The unpainted aluminum forms filter and reflect sunlight, creating patterns of light and dark that comfort and entertain travelers on their way to and from flights.
