Aerial Futures: Urban Constellations

Multiple-airport cities present new challenges for passengers and urban dwellers who may struggle to navigate their aerial infrastructure. Airports within a single city, frequently owned and operated by different governing bodies, are often in competition with one another, and may lack sufficient infrastructure to connect them. This can lead to unpredictable and even confusing experiences.

With seven airports in its metro area, New York City offers an ideal case study to reimagine airports as a choreographed urban ecosystem, as reliant on architecture and urban planning as it is on technology and data-driven design. The film features experts who discuss the challenges and opportunities for the future of New York City’s aerial infrastructure, drawing on the New York think tank’s focus on urban design and digital interfaces.
