Airport Metro Connector

Preliminary Renderings of Artwork Concept

Metro’s Airport Metro Connector (AMC) is a major new multimodal transit hub that will provide a gateway connection between Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) and Metro’s regional transit system. The AMC will connect to the K Line near Aviation Blvd/96th Street and is being designed in sync with an Automated People Mover (APM) to be built and operated by Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA).

The Airport Metro Connector (AMC) will feature a large-scale sculpture that welcomes passengers as they move through this multi-modal hub. Artist Glenn Kaino is working in design collaboration with the architecture team of Grimshaw / Gruen Associates to integrate the artwork suspended over the escalators and leading up to the ceiling oculus.
