Canopy Design – Denver International Airport
At night, the canopy is lit from below and glows in the same fashion as the main terminal. The canopy’s Teflon-coated fiberglass fabric skin provides natural ventilation for comfortable airflow and removal of bus and van exhaust fumes. The design also included the roadway expansion and signage for wayfinding.
