    Description

    Lighting of exterior spaces and some interior spaces of the airport. The gigantism of this architectural object is prone to an allegory of azure with a play of blue and white lights, namely at the level of the pylons and the vaults of the building.
    The thousands of fins and deflectors, entangled in the thickness of the hall’s thermal roof are as many nests that enable to make a light mesh contrasting with the blue of the pillars. The light of the multiple huts, shops, of the sixty tunnels leading to the planes, always emanates from the substance in itself.
