Urban transport megastructures: mutations and permanence - This article offers a definition of ‘megastructure’ that gives the term’s more significant characteristics (flexibility, multifunctionality, generalised interconnection) borrowed from theorists in the 1950s and 1960s and from experimentation by Yona Friedman, Cedric Price, Fumihiko Maki and Peter Cook. Among the various types of megastructure that have supplanted each other over the years, the article examines large airports, interpreted here as both local and international transport hubs and as sites for many types of activity. This is what makes them contemporary urban megastructures, because they are complex ‘objects’ not unlike a small town or city with a strong impact on an area.
