Flights with aero-taxis and personal air-transport systems will become safe and feasible in a few years and they will give rise to the need for approved urban spaces, which allow agile and safe connection networks to be established. This network of urban airports will be formed by different kinds of stations, depending on traffic density and the number of connections; large autonomous stations in newly constructed buildings will be combined with small stations that could be applied to existing buildings. This month, we’re presenting an architectural project that anticipates future challenges. Our Skyport project has eight independent stations that allow [...]
