Foster + Partners had designed a vertiport to be built beside Dubai International Airport (DXB). Developed in collaboration with Skyports Intfrastructure, the terminal will be on a raised roof to facilitate take-off and landing for electric aircraft. The facade’s cantilever and inclination are meant to block sunlight from entering directly, preventing overheating. The project will be part of a whole network of infrastructures for electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL), and will interconnect Dubai’s most populated areas, offering flying taxis for commuters starting in 2026.
