There’s no doubt that the likes of internal LED displays have revolutionised the way in which information is presented to passengers at airports.
Finding gate and flight information has never been easier, and sharing details about delays or cancellations is quick and simple for those using the technology on the other side.
Of course there are applications beyond functional information boards too, with LED displays also able to provide entertainment and even art for those passing through airports around the world.
Now one American firm has launched a certified course to help architects better understand how to utilise LED screens in airport design. Commercial Integrator reported on the course’s launch, with US company NanoLumens behind the idea.
It will be offered through the American Institute of Architects’ (AIA’s) continuing education system. Among the topics covered by the course are wayfinding, information displays and entertainment.
Anyone who takes the course will learn about different kinds of LED displays and how they can be used for different purposes in an airport setting. They’ll also explore the practical considerations associated with installing LED displays, such as funding, the design of structures to support them and what installation requirements they have.
For inspiration on how to use LED displays to showcase art, look no further than Charlotte Douglas International Airport in Charlotte, North Carolina.
AV Interactive recently reported on how the airport has installed three large LED displays that are being used to showcase the world’s largest data sculpture. The work has been created by digital artist Refik Anadol.
