VANCOUVER – AIRPORT ENTRANCE

VANCOUVER – AIRPORT ENTRANCE

Vancouver International Airport offers a spectacular visual display of award-winning art and architecture. Offering visitors a unique journey of Land, Sea and Sky, each terminal building strategically represents the culture heritage, natural beauty and iconic experiences that embody British Columbia. The 50 foot tall GSky Green Wall represents the Coastal Mountains, which it faces to the North. The pixelated pattern in the wall was designed to reflect the mountains through groups of plants. The Green Wall is located immediately outside the doors of the International arrivals gate on the front wall of the YVR Canada Line Station.
