Aerial Futures: Urban Constellations, a public panel to be held on April 6 at the Center for Architecture, will explore multiple airports as infrastructure urban ecosystem that relies as much on architecture as it does on technology and data-driven design.
The fragmentation of airports in a single city, frequently owned and operated by different governing bodies, can lead to unpredictable and even confusing experiences. With seven airports in its metro area, New York City offers a perfect case study to reimagine airports as a choreographed urban ecosystem, which relies as much on architecture and urban planning as it does on technology and data-driven design.
A panel of experts will discuss challenges and opportunities for the future of New York City's aerial infrastructure, drawing from the think tank's focus on urban design and digital interfaces.
