In this incredible series titled Holding Pattern, Graphic Designer Lauren O'Neill reveals the hidden beauty and complexity of airports around the world. We often overlook and take for granted the way in which airports operate and the organisation that it requires to keep it going.

Lauren took to google maps after having a creative block to start capturing these amazing screen shots as she has long been inspired by airports. The complexity of the airport and the way it operates is reflected in its detailed layout and structure, all of which becomes a lot clearer from above.
