Montreal Airport

Receiving passengers traveling to Pierre-Elliot Trudeau International Airport and welcoming to the city those leaving it, that is the goal of this imposing structure located on the side of the road to the airport site. On one side, the backlit logo of the airport contrasts with the opaque face of the object and invariably announces your arrival. As you approach, a bright area moves from the bottom up to symbolize the take-off you are likely to experience. In the opposite direction, the light makes the reverse movement, its descent evoking a landing. On this face, it is possible to see the word Montreal appear among hundreds of aluminum fins to welcome the travelers.
