About the LAX Project
This project, completed in 2018 and located at the entrance of Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) is a stunning example of modern design. The Gateway Pylons, created by Ted Tokio Tanaka Architects, are two 80-foot tall pylon structures situated on Century Boulevard that mark the entryway into one of the world’s busiest airports. Illuminated in various colors, the structures are a vibrant welcome to travelers who come from around the world.
