The first international museum exhibition of airport architecture, "Now Boarding: Fentress Airports + The Architecture of Flight," opens to the public Thursday at the Museum of Flying in Santa Monica.
The multi-site "Now Boarding" exhibition examines the past, present, and future of airport design.
The exhibition will run through August 25.
An entire section is devoted to LAX and the much anticipated $1.5 billion expansion of the Tom Bradley International Terminal by renowned airport architect Curtis W. Fentress.
The exhibition is curated by Donald Albrecht, with exhibits that include a 24-foot scale model of the new Tom Bradley Terminal, as well as animations, renderings, photographs and architectural elements.
A companion exhibition focused on the history of Los Angeles International Airport will be held at the Flight Path Learning Center at LAX.
The Museum is located at 3100 Airport Avenue in Santa Monica.
