AIR TAXI VOLO-PORT The German air taxi company Volocopter developed the first fully electronic vertical take-off vehicle that flies autonomously and is accordingly ideally suited for use in urban areas. Together with GRAFT and Arup, the Berlin agency GRAFT Brandlab won the design competition for a modular vertiport concept.

Das deutsche Air Taxi-Unternehmen Volocopter hat das erste vollelektronische, autonome Senkrechtstart- und -landeflugzeug (eVTOL) entwickelt, eine ideale Lösung für den Einsatz in urbanen Gebieten. Gemeinsam mit GRAFT und Arup gewann die Berliner Agentur GRAFT Brandlab den Wettbewerb, ein modulares Vertiport-Konzept für Volocopter zu entwerfen.

. The result is a flowing space that carefully orchestrates passenger experience and contributes to promoting acceptance of three-dimensional passenger transport. Depending on the specific context, air taxis will depart from the Volo-Port’s roof or an adjacent landing platform.

Das Ergebnis ist ein fließender Raum, der die Erfahrung der Fahrgäste sorgfältig orchestriert und dazu beiträgt, die Akzeptanz des dreidimensionalen Personenverkehrs zu fördern.

Der modulare Charakter von VoloPorts ermöglicht eine nahtlose Integration dieser neuen Transportform in die bestehende städtische Infrastruktur. Mögliche Einsatzszenarien sind Bahnhöfe, Flughäfen und ungenutzte Dachflächen, aber auch schwimmende VoloPorts auf Pontons - unter Nutzung der freien Luftkorridore über Flüssen und anderen Wasserflächen.

Je nach Kontext starten die Lufttaxis vom Dach des VoloPort oder von einer angrenzenden Landeplattform.
