Galaxy Way

Location: the APM station at Terminals D and E at George Bush Intercontinental Airport

Galaxy Way is a work of suspended colored plexiglas by artist Rolando Briseño.

It is a lyrical interpretation of the gigantic and luminous swirls of gas that formed the first stars and eventually became galaxies.

The translucent Plexiglas refracts the light coming in from the skylight and casts colored light on the white terrazzo floor of the station platform.
