Multi-modal aviation hubs: the aerotropolis era

  1. 1. Multi-modal aviation hubs The aerotropolis era
  2. 2. Infrastructure shapes cities Infrastructure lies at the heart of our cities. Transport has always dictated the speed and location of development. From ports in the 1700s, rail in the 1800s, road in the 1900s, through to the rise of aviation in the 2000s.
  3. 3. Cities are our future Cities need to remain competitive and functional. Attracting the right talent, investment, businesses, tourists, events and students, allows a city to remain vibrant. Great cities connect to regional and global markets seamlessly. A city’s future depends on its ability to remain agile, resilient and future ready.
  4. 4. Aviation is driving connectivity in modern cities
  5. 5. It is estimated that over eight million people fly each day. These figures will continue to rise as urbanisation grows and air travel becomes affordable and accessible to all. Creating integrated networks that allow air travel to remain efficient and functional is a clear challenge for the future.
  6. 6. Aviation has changed our lives. How we receive goods, connect globally, do business and have fun. As our cities evolve around these aviation hubs, they are changing the physical, economic and social core of our cities and communities.
  7. 7. What is an aerotropolis?
  8. 8. An aerotropolis is a city with an airport at its centre. It delivers economic opportunities and connects with its surrounds via integrated transport links, social/retail hubs, business precincts and residential areas. When properly planned and designed, it gives a city wings.
  9. 9. It connects people
  10. 10. It’s a destination Through people-driven contextual design, an aerotropolis seeks to deliver an enjoyable user experience by being innately connected and relevant to its surrounds. This includes integrated transport links to help alleviate ‘pain points’ like grid-locked traffic or ambling public transport.
  11. 11. It’s a destination
  12. 12. An aerotropolis is more than a place to board a plane. They are destinations. Dynamic places where people can shop, socialise, attend an expo, plug into a collaborative workspace, stay at a favourite hotel or even raise a family.
  13. 13. How do you create an aerotropolis?
  14. 14. It takes thought
  15. 15. When planned properly, an aerotropolis serves to connect businesses to their regional and global markets, providing opportunities for growth and job creation. These centres drive urban form, economic activity and city competitiveness.
  16. 16. Fundamental to success is comprehensive and thoughtful master-planning; detailed planning which considers the broader social, economic and geographic factors of the region in the early stages of conception.
  17. 17. It makes sense
  18. 18. When careful thought is given during the early stages of planning, an aerotropolis will deliver economic prosperity and support a thriving city. Simply put, an aerotropolis makes sense for our cities and most importantly, for the people who live, work and play in our cities.
  19. 19. Just imagine what can be achieved when we design to innovate. When we bring ideas to life by putting people at the heart of our planning and development. The sky’s the limit…
