Lambert Airport Terminal 1 MetroLink Station

Commissioned by AIT for Metro St. Louis with funding from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act awarded by the Federal Transit Administration (FTA).

Welcoming Metro transit passengers as they depart from Lambert-St. Louis International Airport, these abstract murals depict a striated nightscape crossed by a constellation that mimics a DNA double helix. These playful, visually delightful murals suggests a universal connection between all living things micro and macro, the cells and the cosmos.
