I did a search for this topic, however could not find an answer for the following question that's been bugging me for a while, now:

What does the artistic lighting display on the east-facing facade of the LAX tower represent, exactly (see below)? Furthermore, what are your own thoughts regarding this specific feature?

Any input on this would be greatly appreciated!


It's an entirely different kind of flying; all together.

It's supposed to be a representation of a radar scope. IMO, a bit of 'artistic license' gone too far. However, I will give kudos to LAWA and the LAX Board of Commissioners for getting an exception from the FAA's 'cookie-cutter' design for ATCTs.

With a choice between changing one's mind & proving there's no need to do so, most everyone gets busy on the proof.

In addition the tower often received reflective colored lighting from the theme building.
The roadway leading into LAX on Century Blvd has also large light columns that light up and change color shades every few minutes.

The tower seems like it's too short for LAX given its position.

The 747: The hands who designed it were guided by god.
