The Lyon-Saint-Exupery, initially called Satolas station is the terminus of the TGV trains connecting the airport with the city of Lyon, 24 kilometers south, the first airport that connects directly to the European System of Trains High Speed. In the contest clients, French Railways SNCF , Region Rhone Alpes and Lyon Chamber of Commerce and Industry CCIL made it clear that besides being easy to use should become a symbolic and attractive building that represents the gateway to the region and would be part of a campaign to promote trade through improved transport.

Designed in , the station was completed in The structure of almost forty meters high steel and concrete is the metaphor of a huge bird that stretches out its wings, covering or protecting the railway.

The projected cover is like a giant bird that rises above the train tracks. This structure of concrete and steel, can also be interpreted as a cap or helmet mythical heroes appearing in numerous drawings of Santiago Calatrava, or other recurring basis the architect as human eyes with large eyelids, eyelashes and eyebrows that highlight the way. Access to the main lobby is performed on the street, and down towards the platforms there are stairs and elevators on both sides.

The terminal has a total length up to meters Airport. Unlike what usually happens at the terminals of air and land transport where directions are indicated to the user through conventional signs contained in crates, Calatrava opt for a fully differentiated functionally specialized disposal receptacles indicate the identity and position of spaces through the configuration of the enclosure.

Concrete bridges, stairs, escalators and glass elevators provide access to the platforms. From the Main Hall, triangular, where all services the airport and TGV station is located, leave two domes of glass and steel like wings that connect to the train platforms. The hall has a length of meters, with a width of m and a maximum height of 39m, an indoor weighs 1. From this hall you will pass a large corridor on the platforms and tracks, with a length of meters which runs north-south, parallel to these and covered with a structure that can be interpreted in different ways: read both two-dimensional sectional cross, as a succession of arches or as a series of cantilevered members that touch at their tips.

Another reading is from a three-dimensional view, which is organized as a continuous spatial grid that displays a certain tree structure, highlighting the perception of the ribs. Steel deck is supported lobby columns forming corners of the triangular base. Originally in the side of the central four-way crosswalk were constructed, two on each side, covered by a lattice of concrete were added but then other two outside the lobby.

The structure was drilled at ground level, including niches for light fixtures. From this gallery you can also will access the underground area services, elevators and parking. To enter perpendicularly to the station, the gallery suffers a jog at the point of intersection with the walkway that leads to the parking area. The facade is framed between the gallery and the international terminal, preserving, where possible, the symmetry of the composition. The service building adjacent to the central hall, and on its east side, has in the basement locker room for station personnel, equipment rooms and area distributions.

Downstairs, a hallway where ticket counters and other rail services, shops and offices are located. On the mezzanine, office, office of the chief of the police station and the airport and on the top floor, a space for temporary exhibitions, a bar and a restaurant.

The central pair of arches continue the centerline of the roof to form a backbone of leaving the outer curves spanning the two symmetrical side wings crystal beams. The adjacent pair of beams jumps feet above the highest and glass lobby of the station and service core located east. These ribs are raised on the north and south facades, whose perteluces withstand the cantilevered section. The main hall is triangular and its backbone is formed by three arches braced together by diagonal beams that rest on a concrete mass raised on the east side and two supports integrated with lift towers on the west side.

The upper arch of the column is a triangular box section steel, while the two lower arches are composed of steel pipes. Transverse bracing members vary in size and assembled four by four along the core tubes. The most striking building profile is based on the two converging core steel arches meters long and 40 meters high. Two large cantilevered balconies enter the space.

Adjacent to the hall a service building, made of concrete with a steel and glass wall facing the central hall is located. Concrete is a natural color due to the use of a white sand area. The steel parts that are part of the cover are provided with a dark hue, unusual detail in the works of Calatrava.

The glass walls that form the lobby, are formed by panels with a width of eight feet. The roof is glazed in some sections and other stuffed with prefabricated concrete sections, such as the cover over the platforms. Santiago Calatrava.

Lyon-Saint-Exupéry TGV station

Just looking at the exterior shapes, what do you think about the Lyon Airport Station? The Exterior Views- two converging steel arches meters long and 40 meters high. But, not even about wings or beak or landing action. The station is located in Satolas, France, built in The progressive narrowing creates dynamic feeling, and to evoke a strong image of flight, he uses the design of the overhead skylights. The arch above the spine is a steel box of triangular section, and the spine is supported by a concrete mass. The station caught my attention when I was looking at his complete works.

TGV station Lyon Saint- Exupéry

Calatrava's expressive railway station hall is built astride an existing TGV high-speed train track adjacent to Lyon airport. It provides a TGV station for the airport, but also a connection point for both TGV and airplanes into the regional road and rail system. The building's most striking profile, based on two converging steel arches meters long and 40 meters high. The building is most obviously expressive of a bird, symbolizing flight with even more dynamism than Saarinen's TWA terminal in New York, the two main arches coming together at the bird's beak. Calatrava insists this was not its origin: "I never thought of a bird, but more of the research that I am sometimes pretentious enough to call sculpture" - which is inspired more by the shape of the human eye. Arriving from the airport, one enters the hall from a connecting pier, arriving at the 'back of the bird', at an elevated level. Escalators lead down into the main concourse, from which wings spread out on either side above the railway tracks, with further escalators down to the platforms.
