Santiago Calatrava - Satolas TGV

The Lyon-Satolas Station is the terminus for the TGV trains connecting the airport to the city of Lyon, 30 kilometers to the south. The almost forty meter tall steel and concrete structure refers to the metaphor of a enormous bird with spread out wings. Arriving by car you enter the Main Hall through a "Gateway" formed by a concrete V-shaped abutment that join the ends of four steel arches.
