Photographer's Note

Gare de Saint-Exupéry TGV (formerly Gare de Satolas) is a railway station situated 20km from Lyon city centre. Satolas was designed by Santiago Calatrava, built to serve the TGV line from Paris to Marseille and opened on 3 July 1994. The dramatic of the central hall’s superstructure derives from one of Calatrava’s sculptures: a balanced shape resembling a bird at the point of flight. The building is a steel covered cement structure. Satolas railway station is linked to Lyon's Satolas Airport by a footbridge. This first airport (historically) to be served by a high speed station.
