Passenger Terminal Today says of the project:

“United Airlines and restaurateur OTG have completed the construction of a new expansive food hall in Terminal C at Newark Liberty International Airport, New Jersey.The Global Bazaar features a wide variety of offerings sourced from New York’s diverse and globally-inspired food culture, in addition to its market offering of news, gift and locally sourced retail.”

They go on to add, “With 30% of all travelers passing through Terminal C during breakfast hours, OTG worked with architecture and design firm Rockwell Group to develop a creative solution that physically differentiates breakfast concepts from lunch and dinner. The space transforms as the day progresses, with rotating signs and a change in food offerings. After the breakfast rush departs, the Bazaar’s space automatically adapts to accommodate the lunch and dinner crowd.”

Rockwell Group and the LAB partnered in the development of a $120 million upgrade to Newark airport. Focusing on the traditional and fusion ramen bar, Kaedama, named after the Japanese term for requesting a second serving of noodles.

A guiding Mantra was David Rockwell’s statement, “The airport is really your first ‘hello’ into the city you’re heading to.”

The bright, shining lights of Tokyo streets at night inspired Kaedama’s overall aura and design aesthetic.

This 40-foot tall golden noodle-like sculpture is wrapped in over 17,000 LED lights. We created more than 20 unique Japanese influenced animations that cycle throughout the day and become a spectacle of color and wonder at night.
