Airports are not islands: there are cities out there

While airports are indeed unique, intriguingĀ  – and sometimes frustrating – places all their own, they don’t exist in vacuums. Travelers have to get to them and from them.

The film below explores the relationship between the city and its airports; in this case New York City and its multiple airports.

The film was created on the occasion of theĀ AERIAL FUTURES: Urban ConstellationsĀ think tank in New York City, and explores ways we might improve air travel and urban life by better connecting cities and airports.
