Foster’s Prototype for a Droneport
Last year we talked about Norman Foster’s project for a Droneport. Now a full-scale prototype has been presented at the latest Venice architecture Biennale. The works to build the world’s first airport for drones will start this year in Rwanda. The Droneport will provide aid and support to inaccessible regions. By 2020, when the technology will improve, drones will be capable of lifting up to 20 pounds or more, covering distances of hundreds of kilometers throughout Africa.
