Los Angeles World Airports, the city agency that operates Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), has scheduled the first community design workshop for the Midfield Satellite Concourse, Tom Bradley International Terminal New Large Aircraft Gate Program and related projects at LAX.

The workshop is scheduled from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, July 8th, at the Flight Path Learning Center, 6661 W. Imperial Highway, Westchester.

The project design team headed by Fentress Architects is expected to be in attendance. The purpose of the workshop is to gather comments and impressions from the community that will inform and help guide the architects as they begin to develop the functional and aesthetic design for the project.

This is the first of a series of workshops planned during the design process. Airport officials said the workshop is a unique opportunity for both the architects and the airport stakeholders to collaborate at this crucial stage of the design.

The format of the workshop will be informal so that everyone can participate in a lively discussion on the direction the design might take. Future regularly scheduled workshops during the design process will be held to ensure continual communication on how the design is progressing.

Los Angeles World Airports executive director Gina Marie Lindsey will give a brief introduction of the project and the workshop discussion will then be led by Fentress Architects lead designer Curt Fentress and his staff of designers. Existing photos, maps and materials will be displayed to set the stage for a collaborative discussion.
