Pearson at Terminal 5
words Anna Bates
Terminal 5 has arrived and is home to a series of artworks by Troika, El Ultimo Grito, Christopher Pearson and Oona Culley. The works – curated by London-based practice Artwise – were commissioned by British Airways for six lounges at Heathrow for the airline’s premium passengers.
In one of the lounges, London-based designer Pearson projected the BA crest onto a stone wall. If you look at it long enough, you’ll see the winged lion has some tricks up its sleeve.
The terminal, designed by Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners, will open on 27 March and the artwork will be in place for six years.
