The courtyard façades of the campus symbolise the airflow generated from a flying AIRBUS aircraft. These walls are vibrating with light and compel the visitor’s gaze to follow the curls of this imaginary air.


The cold white tint of the external light contrasts with the warmer interior lighting. The nocturnal atmosphere is rich for this vibrant space that welcomes, educates and accommodates Airbus employees from all over Europe.


As the onlooker moves, the lights appear to dance, whether as pedestrians on the Campus’ central square or flyers on the Toulouse-Blagnac airport runways.


Given that the campus is located on the airport territory, during this light installation we took account of the air traffic constraints at every single step of its development.
