This project dealt with economic and social aspects (creation of jobs, economic activity, mobility, access to housing, security) between the airport's activity and the right to the city. This project focused on the land-side areas of airports, especially those areas outside of the airport perimeter that might include: economic areas, open spaces, local communities, transport related infrastructure. These transition areas are often disconnected and fragmented but are also keys for local and regional development due to its potential to foster many activities and to enable economic growth.
