Haptic Architects and Nordic Office of Architecture conceptualize a sustainable airport design as an energy-positive solution for Oslo, Norway. The firms concentrated on the phenomenon of the 'Aerotropolis' -- a sub-region of a metropolis, where the layout and economic infrastructures center themselves around a multi-modal airport city.
The sustainable airport's four million square meter masterplan is designed, based on the "government's ambition to move from an oil-based economy to one, powered by reusable energy." Utilizing smart and innovative technology, Haptic Architects and Nordic Office of Architecture hope that the conceptualized sustainable airport will generate surplus energy that can be offered to surrounding buildings. Additionally, the vision of the eco-friendly Airport City in Oslo includes its potential as a test-bed for new technologies, "including electric driverless cars, auto-lighting, smart waste and [even] an electric aircraft."
