A new plan could make our favorite sci-fi films a reality. Netherlands-based architecture and urban design practice MVRDV â in collaboration with Airbus, Bauhaus Luftfahrt, ETH Zurich and Systra â have formulated a plan for the future of âurban air mobility.â
The project envisions how humans might integrate flying vehicles into our urban environments as a holistic mobility concept. Itâs all centered around what MVRDV calls âvertiportsâ â fancy landing hubs that connect the new aerial network with existing ground-based transportations systems, such as trains, subways and buses.
âAs cities become denser and technologies improve, it becomes increasingly clear that the truly three-dimensional cityâone that includes flying vehiclesâis surely one of the city models of the future,â said Winy Maas, founding partner of MVRDV.
