Oculus – Fort Wayne International Airport

Fort Wayne, Indiana

This early model (or maquette) was made by Gordon to illustrate the concept for design approval by the project stakeholders.


Oculus is an exciting and vibrant gateway project designed for the Fort Wayne International Airport. It boasts a visually stunning mix of materials, shapes, colors and lighting effects. The installation celebrates the rich history of aviation, enhances the airport’s visual appeal, promotes the state of Indiana and provides a unique and interactive space for passenger experiences.


The concept for Oculus takes inspiration from the fluid and iconic shape of airplane wings and establishes the viewer’s engagement with the history of aviation in the state. Four 18-foot stainless steel ‘wings,’ elegantly designed to resemble airplane wings, provide support for an open yet structured space.
