Four uplifting art installations at Miami International Airport (MIA) use Beatles references and flower power to deliver positive messages throughout the terminals and concourses. Created by the Miami architect/artist team of Rosario Marquardt and Roberto Behar, the works from R&R Studios brighten MIA’s facilities with optimistic word sculptures created out of fabric daisies, mums and other colorful blooms.   

Peace and Love acts as a universal welcome sign in Concourse D of the North Terminal; while Besame Mucho, in the South Terminal International Greeters Lounge, speaks more directly to the airport’s large segment of Spanish-speaking passengers. (MIA offers more flights to Latin America and the Caribbean than any other U.S. airport and is the third-busiest airport in the U.S. for international passengers.) “Besame mucho” loosely translates to “kiss me a lot” in English. 

All Together Now enhances Concourse H in the South Terminal; and All We Need is Love issues a sunny reminder in the Customs corridor of the North Terminal. 

Partners in life and design, Marquardt and Behar strive to erase boundaries between art and life and offer “imaginary solutions” for a better world. 

Installations by R&R Studios appear throughout the world. A larger-scale version of Besame Mucho appeared at the 2016 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.

Fairbanks International Airport Baggage Transport Conveyor Enhanced With Mod Drive™ System


Fairbanks International Airport Baggage Transport Conveyor Enhanced With Mod Drive™ System

Airports face a host of unique industry challenges, such as meeting efficiency regulations and seeking out the best maintenance practices to reduce costs and keep operations flowing. In today’s current economic climate, any potential cost savings can go a long way. 

In 2019, Alaska’s Fairbanks International Airport (FAI) sought to modernize its equipment and operations. They were dissatisfied with the performance of the gearmotors on their baggage transport conveyors and began searching for new suppliers. Regal approached FAI with a solution that could improve equipment performance and simplify maintenance, with the added benefit of energy cost savings: the Hub City® MOD Drive™ system.

This white paper discusses the hardware deployed, the test results and the annualized expectations for ROI.
