GREATER ORLANDO AVIATION AUTHORITY

GREATER ORLANDO AVIATION AUTHORITY
Orlando International Airport
South Terminal C
Iconic Art Piece
Submission Requirements
Request for Qualifications (RFQ) (Step 1)

Opportunity

The Greater Orlando Aviation Authority (“Authority”) seeks one or more artist(s) or artists’ team(s) to develop an Iconic Art Piece for South Terminal C. The selection process will involve two steps:

Step 1: Request for Qualifications (RFQ) Process to select up to four (4) shortlisted artist(s) or artists’ team(s) and

Step 2: Request for Proposals (RFP) for those artists or artists’ team(s) shortlisted; stipends included for all shortlisted artists or artists’ team(s) in this step.

Background and Theme:

Orlando is an international gateway to the Central Florida region. Orlando International Airport (MCO) is the busiest airport in Florida serving 47 million annual passengers.  MCO has been ranked #1 by J. D. Power for customer satisfaction among mega-airports two years in a row. The airport features world class service and four-star amenities. The region has grown to become an economic engine in several major sectors including: technology and innovation, tourism and themed attractions, agriculture and wellness and space exploration advancement.

“The Orlando Experience®” design concept is best described as creating a feeling that provides a sense of place, reflects the Central Florida environment in the use of light, water, Florida foliage, and is in harmony with the Central Florida environment.

Art as Part of the Design:

Since the initial concept, art has been a part of the airport’s design contributing to “The Orlando Experience®.” Throughout the North and South Terminal complexes, art has been incorporated to enhance the design concepts and the architectural statement of space while reflecting the outdoors and natural environment experiences available in Central Florida.

“The Orlando Experience®” is further achieved through passenger conveniences: light and airy spaces, family oriented, natural materials and finishes indicative and reflective of the Central Florida environment. Iconic symbols for Orlando International Airport are sky, garden and water.

The South Terminal Complex is a new $2.8 billion terminal program under construction connected to the North Terminal by an Automated People Mover System which is all part of the Orlando International Airport campus.  The South Terminal includes 19 International and Domestic gates, Ground Transportation Facilities, a Retail and Food Concessions program and Rental Car facilities. The design of the facility embraces and expands on “The Orlando Experience®” concept.  The South Terminal will open in 2021.

The Iconic Art Piece will be located in a signature area of the multistory glass enclosed perimeter with a potential 60 feet wide by 80 feet tall footprint near the vertical circulation which is part of the Arrivals Experience at the South Terminal.  The project should provide a “wow” or arrival moment or opportunity to reflect and engage the viewer both from the external and internal building space. The project offers a monumental opportunity to reflect the community in a timeless forward thinking and modern way

Criteria/Theme for the Iconic Art Piece:

1.     Artistic Concept & “The Orlando Experience®” Context

            · Innovative, dynamic and timeless interpretation of “The Orlando Experience®”

            · Responsiveness to the Orlando International Airport and South Terminal architectural context

            · The airport is a welcoming gateway to the community; the Iconic Art Piece must assist in remembering Orlando and creating a landmark by giving our visitors the best first experience

            · Welcoming and Innovative – reflecting many cultures and diversities at a global destination

            · Feel Welcome and Feel Orlando

            · Iconic symbols for MCO are sky, garden and water

            · The human environment is to be emphasized

            · Show the environment and the quality of life

            · Should experience the outdoors from indoors

            · Engaging from both the interior and exterior during the day and at night, 24 hours a day

2.     Technical Feasibility and Maintenance Requirements

            · Consideration of structural, electrical, plumbing, media and artificial lighting constraints

            · Appropriate and demonstrated proficiency in selection of medium and material of long-term longevity

            · The Iconic Art Piece must be assembled within the space

            · Reasonable maintenance and access planning

Scope:

The selected artist(s) or team will be awarded a comprehensive contract that will cover the artwork design and engineering, fabrication, materials, insurance, travel, public presentations, meetings with MCO staff as necessary, and all related incidental expenses.  The Authority will provide the installation; however, the artist or artists’ team will oversee the installation.

Schedule:

The installation of the Iconic Art Piece must be complete prior to the opening of the South Terminal in 2021.

Location:

The Iconic Art Piece will be located in a signature area of the multistory glass enclosed perimeter with a potential 60 feet wide by 80 feet tall footprint near the vertical circulation which is part of the Arrivals Experience at the South Terminal. See the attached Concept Package.

Building Coordination Requirements

The successful artist or artists’ team will need to work closely with the Authority and its representatives to ensure the Iconic Art Piece is coordinated with the building, including the technical requirements. The Iconic Art Piece could be suspended or floor mounted; a suspended art piece would allow the public to walk underneath it and look up.
