The first airports were just temporary structures consisting of tents and ground markings. Indeed, flat terrain without obstacles was enough as a landing strip. These pioneer airports were located in large fields.
It was not until shortly before the Second World War that airports stood out from this picture. In the 1920s, in the United States, the US military and the National Post Office wanted to make aviation something useful. The project of designing a national network is quickly born. The idea was to be able to carry cargo and / or passengers by plane. The development of commercial aviation has generated technical needs such as specialized (hangar, terminal, control tower, etc.) and technological buildings such as systems to improve flight safety (lights, radar, etc.). As a result, a hard, flat surface for runways has become necessary for the proper functioning of the airport. The asphalt runways have been designed to make it easier and safer for take-off and landing. The first hangars were also built to facilitate the technical service of the aircraft on the ground. The creation of the terminal proved to be essential for creating an interface between the passengers and the aircraft. The various accesses to the runways have been developed, especially the ground taxiways to allow rapid interventions by the specialized fire department. It was in the 1960s that airports took this form. Thereafter, the entourage of the airports was also arranged with hotels, parking spaces for cars or even offices for airport authorities for example.
Towards the end of the century, airports became very specific systems and not just "stations". In fact, in response to demand, airports have evolved into entities that fulfill several functions: commercial, social, security, etc.
The challenges for airport architecture today are driven by ever-increasing demand. Indeed, more and more people are traveling by plane. To meet this demand, aircraft with a higher passenger capacity have been designed and could be designed in the future. This can lead to significant adaptations in airports. Indeed, it is necessary to revise the length and width of runways, shoulders, and taxiways. It is also necessary to improve the resistance of bitumen since these planes are heavier. Finally, it is necessary to equip terminals with specialized gate and bridge.
