The aim of ‘Buying’ will be to shorten the time of delivery by pushing the time efficiency to its limit. Drones will be flying over the cities, once the regulations are approved. It will be possible to buy goods in a very short time and receive it on your current location. Our project takes place in Plaza de Castilla station, Madrid – where the biggest flux of people and traffic in the city is happening. The drone-port is one cantilevered truss element made from steel, statically approved, connecting the old transportation system – three metro lines, with the futuristic ones – drones. The lockers containing goods, are being transported with robots from the warehouse to the special metro carriage. Once they arrive, the robots lift and connect them to the drone-port structure. Before they are stored, it is possible for a person to come and pick the order on the go. The moving lockers’ system is working in 2 layers – using magnets, by changing from positive to negative ionization all the time; and by storing the lockers until the drones pick them. This circulating system is completely sustainable as lockers are reused, returning to the port and the center.
The light, levitating architectural element is the focal point from which all goods are being delivered – and they are landing on your palm!
