‘spaceport city’ is topped with a large roof that connects all the different spherical volumes of the project. its undulating form creates a wavy landscape that allows the formation of patios, open-air gardens, and even farmlands in various scales, while providing covered public space for people and other means of individual mobility. additionally, the hub also includes two levels of large plazas – one at the level of departures and one at the level of arrivals.a dynamic design of piers emerges from the main volume of the building

 

 

the entire building composes a small ecosystem with internal smart transportation, including self driving cars, autonomous train, and electric scooters. anyone and anything inside the building, from employees to visitors to objects, can be spotted and quickly transported to any part of the complex. its functions are divided based on security requirements, assuring the highest safety without creating too many visual obstructions.

‘spaceport city’ is packed within a city-scale circular disk that forms a magnificent 5th façade, making the entire complex recognizable from space. a dynamic design of piers emerges from the main volume of the building. families and teams of supporters for space passengers will be able to gather and view the departure and landing from the lounges in the upper floors of each pier.a magnificent 5th façade makes the entire complex recognizable from space the function diagram for spaceport city includes three levels and a dynamic roof
