Start.ca Partners with Area Companies to Unveil New Installations at London International Airport

Back to blog

LONDON, ON – Start.ca has unveiled new installations at the London International Airport (LIA). Created in collaboration with area partners, the installations feature materials and symbols local to the Forest City. The installations were designed to facilitate connection and demonstrate appreciation and pride for London, Ontario to travellers, whether they are residents of the city or visiting for the first time.

The installations include a large “living wall” near the Departures entrance inside the airport and two vinyl-wrapped loading bridges that travellers use to board or exit waiting aircraft. The living wall is an 11-foot high installation of plants and mosses native to Ontario and North America, and it incorporates a 13-foot, 250lb live edge wood feature that was sustainably sourced from a Thamesford property. An integrated plumbing system was installed behind the living wall to sustain plant life, allowing for continual growth and maintenance of this unique piece of art. The vinyl-wrapped loading bridges feature well-known London landmarks and neighbourhoods, as well as the Start.ca products and services that facilitate connection for residents and businesses in the area.
