Airports and cities coevolve in multifold ways. The research platform investigates this complex reciprocity in international case studies.
Airports and Cities is a research platform that investigates the relationship of airports and their urban regions. Searching for a deeper understanding of their reciprocity, the aim is finding potentialities for better and more sustainable airport and urban development strategies.
Airports and Cities is based on specific case studies, such as Zurich Airport region, Munich Airport region, Singapore Airport region, the Pearl River airport system, or Amsterdam airport region.
Airport and Cities' main research themes are urbanisation effects of hub airports, development of airport design and planning, best practices of enhanced reciprocity of airports and cities and conceptual models for airports and cities.
Airports and Cities is connected to TU Munich, TU Delft, University of Amsterdam as well as industry partners such as Schiphol, Zurich Kloten Airport and Amsterdam Schiphol Airport‘s theGrounds.
