Aerial Futures Symposium

Venice, Italy, 19th October 2016

Nelly Ben Hayoun is the Keynote Speaker at the Aerial Futures Symposium on the 19th October 2016. 

The Aerial Futures Symposium explores the current state of airport design and the future of this rapidly evolving architectural typology. The symposium brings thinkers and practitioners to Venice for two days, and is open to the general public.

Drawing on the expertise of prominent airport terminal designers, industry leaders and disruptive innovators, the symposium will be a forum for knowledge sharing and exchange. Keynotes, presentations and panels will showcase leading thinking and projects related to terminal creation and operation, from components to user experience.

Hosted by the European Cultural Centre, Aerial Futures is part of the 15th International Architecture Exhibition of la Biennale di Venezia’s official collateral events. The symposium forms a vital response to this year’s Biennale theme, Reporting from the Front. Increasing numbers of globally mobile people have an ever-greater impact on the development of the start and end point of air travel: the airport terminal.

Other speakers include Tom Theobald (Fentress Architects), Thomas Pellegrin (PwC Dubai), TBD: Deborah Flint (LAX), Andrew Vasey (Vasey Aviation Group), Frank Barich (Barich Consulting), Anna Gasco (ETH Zurich / Future Cities Laboratory), Miklos Deri (Drive Through Airport), Tobias Nolte (Certain Measures), Alex Sutton (UCL) and TBD: Marcus Morrell (Arup Foresight).
