2017 AWARD THEME: Taxidrone Station, Architecture and the City

Intra-urban air transport will become, under the initiative of the municipality of Dubai, a reality both ecologically responsible by the use of non-polluting drone but also strategic to thin roads traffic.
Unlike helicopters, transport drones sign their deployment in the cities in the form of a fleet of taxidrone spanned in malls, hotels, tourist sites, buildings … and will lead to profound modifications of architecture and public spaces.


A taxidrone station is closely linked to the parks and gardens and has inspired landscapes and architecture that is linked to the development of this new mode of transport. Many landing pad are also linked directly to the shores of sea, oceans, on large boats and will elicit architectures related to water and resort, to maritime activities. Ecological awareness and private air travel will be brought back to the popular environment. Buildings open new architectural and landscape projects with facilities for rooftop transfer to rooftop.


The 2017 EMIRATI AWARD will reward architects, urban projects, installations closely linked to the taxidrone station and its users. For example, it may involve the upgrading of existing or new buildings (condo, private house, hotel, tourist site, etc.), the creation of neighborhoods or facilities where urban flight is a major component of the urban take-off/landing space and the development of recharging and light-signaling docks, of exemplary and original projects for the recovery and re-use of modern oriental culture …

A special prize will be awarded to one imagination project around the theme “Machine intelligence and metal insectoid”.
The scale, theme, program, possible locations of these projects are left to the discretion of each.
