Delta Air Lines sought to renovate their Delta Flight Museum into a world class venue celebrating Delta Air Lines and its industry. Located on their corporate campus adjacent to the world’s busiest airport, the museum is housed in two historic 1940s-era hangars. The museum would be open to the public and made available as a signature Atlanta event space, serving both the Delta community and the general public.
Lorenc+Yoo Design was hired by Stevens & Wilkinson to masterplan the museum and create its conceptual design. The concept featured two main narratives: the Prop Era housed in the older, smaller Hangar One and the Jet Age in housed the larger Hangar Two with supporting program between the two hangars. Gary Lee Super Associates was later engaged by Delta Air Lines for the final exhibit design.
The Prop Era space contains an auditorium for museum orientation, flight attendant graduations, and other celebrations to honor the Delta community; the original passenger-carrying DC-3, and historic company and industry archives. The Jet Age Era space contains the employee purchased Spirit of Delta Boeing 767, many other corporate and industry period archives, and the only fully functional flight simulator available to the public in the US. Display cases here are created from aircraft luggage carts, landing gear are utilized as canopy columns, and the hangars themselves are treated as exhibits.
