Flying carpet pictogram for the SeaTac station.

International Blvd and S 176th Street, SeaTac

 
Flying Sails by Werner Klotz, on display at the SeaTac Airport station.

Flying Sails by Werner Klotz – located on the platform and mezzanine

A pair of 35-foot-high stainless steel abstract sails hang from the platform ceiling to the mezzanine level between the escalators. Wind-activated panels on the northern sail contain the names of Northwest native tribes; the southern sail names cities on the same latitude or longitude as Seattle.

Restless by Christian Moeller, on display at the SeaTac Airport station.

Restless by Christian Moeller – located on the International Blvd pedestrian bridge

A series of red propellers rotate horizontally in the ceiling of the pedestrian bridge creating an abstract sculpture to keep birds – both revered and reviled by the flight-centric Airport – at bay.

Celestial Navigation by Fernanda D'Agostina, on display at the SeaTac Airport station.

Celestial Navigation by Fernanda D'Agostino – located on the plaza

An 18-foot-high glass and metal sculpture, inspired by a navigational quadrant, serves as a projection screen for an artist-created video about the cultures residing in the SeaTac area and studies of flight. The plaza is enhanced with terrazzo and bronze inlay circles.

The Braid by Norie Sato, on display at the SeaTac Airport station.

The Braid by Norie Sato – located on all Link light rail station platforms; from UW in Seattle to Angle Lake in SeaTac

Sato created The Braid design for the initial Link line in Seattle. Now each light rail station incorporates this tactile paving pattern in the form of a rope, stretching along the length of the platform. Braided knots indicate vehicle boarding areas and a braided sculpture marks the station entrance. Together, these wayfinding elements tie the stations together.
