The Salt Lake City airport project was designed by the architectural firm AJC Architects, that worked closely with the SLCDA (Salt Lake City Department of Airports). The aim of the project was part restructuring and part extension of the current structure. This meant addressing tasks with different levels of complexity.
Architectural intervention: Suspended Bridge (2013) The construction element made of cement, steel and glass connects Terminal 1 with the car park and rental car services. One of the fundamental design requirements was the use of light material (so as to reduce the structural load), that was resistant to traffic and with large sizes. The ceramic product that was selected was Slimtech by Lea Ceramiche, the ultra thin slab that is only 3,5mm thick and extra large (up to 3m x 1m); a light product that is suitable for high traffic areas such as airports.
The Basaltina and Arenaria collections, that recreate the effect of natural stone in various shades of color and the use of multi-format installation (100x100, 50x100 and 50x50) create a chromatic effect that highlights the transit areas.
