Exodus to the skies

Institution / Company: Facultad de Arquitectura, Diseño y Urbanismo (FADU)


-WINNER of Hong Kong Drone Port Competition


In a world distinguished by its constant shortage, the streets become less and less inhabited zones. Human irresponsibility has caused remediless havoc on Earth, natural disasters have become more and more frequent and extreme. The air begins to be really harmful for human’s health, forcing people to move their lives and transport to the skies, into a lockdown life. Hong Kong goes through a process of transformation, its old skyscrapers evolve into self-sustaining ones, overcoming the constant flooded old streets. Using the brand new reverse-gravity technology, the Hong Kong Drone Port separates itself from the flood and tsunami problems, levitating without adding fire to the contamination mess. Victoria Harbour has a direct physical connection with de Drone Port, where the ship’s cargo gets transported. The Drone Port works as a wide and short range transportation of goods hub. Drones are the ones in charge of transporting goods all over the country, but also in charge of the more local transportation; that is if the building doesn’t count with its private connection line with the Drone Port.

Jury Comments

– Irene Luque Martin

A proposal with a sense of distopia but with care from the existing catastrophic trends. Solutions to think in the future beyond the exclusive mobility side of drones.
