Memphis International Airport Ground Transportation Center

LRK designed a new 6,500-space parking facility and pedestrian corridor as part of a two-phased renovation project for the Memphis International Airport. Carefully blending with the existing aesthetics, a skin of perforated metal reflects the surrounding environmental changes through transparency and lighting. The garage introduces cutting edge technology while providing a front door for the airport, and a landscaped pedestrian corridor shapes the user experience between garage and airport terminal.
