Fans of the K’NEX Brand building systems will be delighted to see this giant K’NEX structure that will be on display at Philadelphia International Airport (PHL), post-security in Terminal A-West, through October, 2014

According to PHL play experts, a team of six designers and engineers worked together for almost 170 hours to create this 7-foot-high structure using more than 48,000 K’NEX parts.

There’s also a new exhibit at San Francisco International Airport  organized by the SFO Museum and the Asian Art Museum of San Francisco that features seventy-five contemporary artworks created by some of Korea’s most respected artists.
