American Artist James Carpenter Selected as Lead Artist
Congratulations James Carpenter!
With over 40 years of experience and a rare synthesis of skills to the intersection of art, engineering, and the built environment James Carpenter is set to radically change the San Diego Skyline.
Carpenter and James Carpenter Design Associates will be a vital member of the Board-approved design-build team, which includes Turner-Flatiron and Gensler. This unusual and groundbreaking collaboration is the first of its kind for the San Diego Airport Authority. Usually, artists are commissioned to design original works of art inside and outside the building. Conversely, Carpenter and team have been charged with developing a design for the building itself, focusing on the south façade.
