In this competition we encourage participants to come up with visionary concepts for a drone port – only 3 drawings, absolute freedom of scale or program. Participants are asked to propose conceptual ideas for new architectural typologies in relation to air mobility, specifically in the city of Hong Kong, through the design of an urban drone port.
As cities become highly populated and technology evolves, it has become likely that air mobility might be part of the transportation modes of the future. In this scenario, drones become part of transportation networks in future cities, by replacing or supplementing existing ones. By imagining a world where the urban airspace is populated by drones and aerial vehicles, drone ports become a necessity – a building to support autonomous air traffic. It is up to the participant to propose how the built environment may adapt to this new reality, as well as the specificities and type of use of the drones.
As designers, what new perspective can we bring to the changes in the cities, new delivery systems and travel experiences resulting from aerial mobility?
Hong Kong Drone Port aims to answer those questions with a particular focus on mobility in high-density cities.
