Airports convey the first and the last impression of a city. The special usage of channelling great crowds of people within a very short time brings along a bustling activity. Consequently, it is the aim of the architecture and the lighting design to counteract this hectic rush by creating a calm, non-monotonous atmosphere. A uniform lighting would make the airport appear endless. Thus, for creating a visual shortening, the eye needs a clear separation of the route into several partial sections. While the check-in areas are equipped with luminous ceilings that work as conspicuous aiming points, the routes in between are designed as unobtrusive as possible, allowing an easy focus on the destination point.
