Aerial Futures: Grounded Visions for the Airport Terminal of Tomorrow

« All Events

A SYMPOSIUM ON THE ARCHITECTURE OF AIR TRAVEL

HOSTED BY THE EUROPEAN CULTURAL CENTRE
ORGANIZED BY PLANE—SITE

OCTOBER 17—19, 2016
VENICE, ITALY

The Aerial Futures symposium explores the current state of airport design and the future of this rapidly evolving architectural typology. The symposium brings thinkers and practitioners to Venice for two days, and is open to the general public.

Drawing on the expertise of prominent airport terminal designers, industry leaders and disruptive innovators, the symposium will be a forum for knowledge sharing and exchange. Keynotes, presentations and panels will showcase leading thinking and projects related to terminal creation and operation, from components to user experience.

Hosted by the European Cultural Centre, Aerial Futures is part of the 15th International Architecture Exhibition of la Biennale di Venezia’s official collateral events. The symposium forms a vital response to this year’s Biennale theme, Reporting from the Front. Increasing numbers of globally mobile people have an ever-greater impact on the development of the start and end point of air travel: the airport terminal.

Airports are taking the lead as intricately designed, highly frequented and resource-intensive structures that define how we travel, trade and connect with each other, now and into the future.
