At the Detroit airport's McNamara Terminal, the new passenger tunnel is an elevating experience.
The colorful corridor has sculpted glass walls, fabric ceilings and 400,000 computer-generated lights. Architect David King calls it a "non-tunnel."
"By that I mean that a tunnel where instead of feeling you are on the ground, you actually could imagine yourself in a completely different environment," King says.
From sunrise to sunset, the light and sound show is designed to help move hurried travelers from Concourse A to Concourse B a little more calmly.
"It's soothing," King explains. "The light level is not overly bright. Oftentimes in the U.S. we over-light our spaces, and it makes you uncomfortable. We are trying to alleviate that sense of stress."
The travelers Sunday Morning spoke to described the tunnel as a five minute yoga session, futuristic and beautiful.
It is tunnel vision in Detroit.
