Airport of Nice

If you come to Nice by plane, you'll be very quickly fascinated by what you see. Sure, whenever you arrive - during daytime or at night, the view of the Cote d'Azur by plane is always fascinating, but the airport to which you arrive is also a very interesting building! The T2 terminal is one of the recently constructed airports by a French architect Paul Andreu (see the links) who made a lot of great airport buildings around the world (and many other interesting constructions) and who designed this new building for Nice international airport who was inaugurated year 2002.

The construction looks like a big round spaceship, surrounded with glass: it’s a giant mirror when you’re looking at it outside and full of light from inside. The circular structure permits you to see the whole airport from the waiting room and the different restaurants that are inside the building. Go there with your cam and look at the different forms and structures you can take: horizon is a good cam for this, just look at the pics and enjoy!
