How is the landscape modified by air transportation? Can the landscape and airport infrastructure be integrated following ecological criteria? How can an airport be integrated into the local context? what design devices can be used? How can we combine today’s technological requirements with the need for unforeseen new functions in the future? In the future, how might disused airport infrastructure possibly be “recycled”?
This book analyzes two airports in north east Italy near the city of Treviso, more precisely, the area surrounding the low cost civil airport of Quinto di Treviso and the military airfield of Istrana, presenting ideas and strategies to integrate airport, landscape and communities through design practice.
