Sculptures by Ann Preston seen at San Francisco International Airport, San Francisco - You Were in Heaven

You Were in Heaven

A ceiling dome, installed at one end of the corridor at San Francisco International Airport lit through blue gels, is inspired by early creation myths that describe the sky as originating from ice crystals. On the floor below the dome are bronze and terrazzo medallions. As passengers pass through the dome and walk along the corridor wall, they encounter five 60-foot long curved niches. Ann Preston created these complex forms using only two unique shapes of tiles.
