City scale infrastructure programming for tomorrows aerotropolis

Often conceived as engines for economic development, Aerotropolis are redefining traditional urban typologies. Aero city infrastructure planning traverses a myriad of interwoven land uses to assess commercial viability and optimum operational efficiency.
