Challenged by programming data and architectural specifications, we propose using the programme’s office space to create a skyline linking all the centre’s light aircraft and business aviation hangars. The eastern wall thus becomes a main side facing the future training centre and offices.
Hangar 16 measures 12m in height, 96m in length and 36m in width. These dimensions, multiples of 12, make it possible to use various patterns to arrive at the smallest one, i.e. pyramids, the height and width of which are 1.5m.
