Terminal 2, Hall F, Roissy Charles-de-Gaulle Airport
Coming after the Exchange Module in the composition of the Terminal 2 complex, the construction of Hall F modifies the size and internal organization of the whole and greatly increases its complexity without however betraying the system’s initial design. It constitutes a sort of dialectical synthesis of all that preceded it and a new step in the airport’s development. The design creates a balance between the main building in which concrete and opacity prevail - despite touches of light and transparency here and there - and the two perpendicular piers, “peninsulas”, 45 meters wide and 140 meters long, with glass roofs and facades supported by a light metal frame.Coming after the Exchange Module in the composition of the Terminal2 complex, the construction of Hall F modifies the size andinternal organization of the whole and greatly increases its complexitywithout however betraying the system’s initial design.
