Six airports designed by Denver-based Fentress Architects are featured: Denver International Airport, Incheon International Airport in Seoul, South Korea; Seattle-Tacoma International Airport; Norman Mineta San José International Airport, Raleigh-Durham International Airport in North Carolina and Los Angeles International Airport.

“Throughout Now Boarding, visitors will see how airport design has been shaped by world events, from the “heroic” era of the early 20th century to the “democratic” era of the ‘70s and ’80s. The final leg of the journey acquaints visitors with the airport of the future.”
