It’s one of the most creative applications of i-Mesh. The installation made of a series of permeable wing shapes, that became little by little more present as the translucent shapes overlap each other. The outcome is a extraordinary ethereal effect that takes the observer right into the clouds.

Located on 27 square miles of desert landscape in New Mexico, Spaceport America is Virgin Galactic’s human spaceflight headquarters and center of flight operations.

Funded by the state of New Mexico, and the Sierra and Dona Ana counties, Spaceport America provides cutting edge facilities and a remarkable training location for astronauts, as well as the perfect setting to start and finish the spaceflight itself.

The Gateway to Space building – a signature feature of Spaceport America – serves as a home for our vehicles, a hub for astronaut preparation and the nerve center for flight operations. The building was designed by world-renowned, UK-based Foster + Partners – winners of an international architectural competition in 2007 for world’s first purpose built commercial spaceport.
