Since its opening in 1974, Paris-CDG Airport has grown steadily. Now in the process of welcoming a 4th terminal, the establishment of this immense transport hub has not always met with unanimous approval.
Considering the questions that the location of an airport in a peri-urban, rural area surrounded by villages and medium-sized towns may raise, the proposal aims at repairing CDG by focusing on the problems of negation of the territory.
Repairing CDG will involve taking into account the context, exploited here to generate the airport’s own identity, anchored in its site. Inspired by the work of Baron Haussmann, the future CDG Airport will be composed in the manner of a city, generating cultural, well-being, entertainment, commercial and service activities. This complex will be developed at the interstice of existing structures, in a living area that will link the current and future terminals to establish an evolutionary and sustainable system.
