Location | Charles de Gaulle Airport terminal 1, Île-de-France region, France
Charles de Gaulle is the 2nd busiest airport in Europe after London Heathrow, and 8th busiest in the world. The airport has 3 terminals, and terminal 1 (as we see in the picture) was designed by Paul Andreu with the form as an octopus. Andreu hoped to build other terminals based on the design of terminal 1, but several defects were identified few years after opening the airport in the 1980s and its design has been criticised numerously. There are 7 satellites connected underground from the middle area which serves as a check-in and baggage claim area. Paul Andreu has also designed airports in Manilla, Jakarta, Shanghai, Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Cairo, Brunei and Paris.
