Work begins on Rogers’ €180m Lyon Airport terminal

  • Comment

Work has begun on Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners (RSHP) competition-winning scheme for Lyon-Saint Exupéry Airport’s Future Terminal 1

The new €180 million terminal will double the size of the French airport’s existing area to 70,000m².

The circular building, made up of ‘bold, simple and elegant structural elements’, has been designed not to ‘detract from the distinctive’ bird-like TGV train station at the airport by Spanish star Santiago Calatrava which opened in 1994.

Built as an extension to the existing Terminal 1, it will connect via an underground passage to the separate Terminal 3, which has been operational since November 2011.

New exterior landscaped areas include a pedestrian esplanade and new transport infrastructure.

The practice, which landed the 2006 Stirling Prize for its Barajas airport in Madrid and recently secured planning for a new £227 million terminal at Geneva airport, won the Lyon job in June last year (2013).
