AEROVILLE, future city center of the Paris ‘Roissy-Charles-de-Gaulle’ airport area designed by Philippe Chiambaretta/PCA for Unibail-Rodamco and Paris Airports Company
Hybrid between an airplane terminal and a shopping mall, Aeroville was designed by the architect as a new programmatic concept spread over a one-storey surface of 110.000 sqm.
This urban piece is not inclined to be a cathedral for mass consumption. Instead, it is meant to revive social life, services and mixed activities, at the heart of a 2 million people area running from the north of Paris to Compiègne. Th e Aeroville program invents the city center of the CDG airport area through a building, shaped as a shopping mall inspired by travel imagination and harboring nearly 200 shops plus numerous services for travelers, airport staff and neighboring citizens.
Given the rapid development of the airport area within the framework of the ‘Grand Paris’, Aeroville is synonym of imminent gathering and connectivity. As such, this program is a time maker of a constantly moving world. Not only is it both a global and local project, but it also provides increased entertainment in a very crowded region as shown for example by the 12 multiplex rooms which will be installed in collaboration with French film director and producer Luc Besson.
The new dynamic in historical city centers throughout the world is mainly the consequence of the mall scheme decline, and results, as in Tokyo, in the construction of spectacular flagship showrooms and shops, symbols of global merchandise traffic. Aeroville defies this illusion and asserts itself via these luxurious flagships whose names and logos, designed by the french graphic designers de Valence, appear as simple letters: A, E, R, O, original monogram symbols of dream brands.
The streets in the building, opened to the sky, invite everybody to daydream with their eyes guided by the aeroplanes take offs.
The laying of first stone took place Friday October 7 2011; its delivery is planned for 2013.
