"Transportation defines a city, its scale and structure, guides its inner rhythm as well as global economic prosperity. Today, our world faces dramatic transportation changes.  
New types of vehicles appear, introducing new approaches to delivering, travelling and commuting: quadrocopters, drones, hoverbikes, magnet levitation rails or hyperloops. 
In order to organize an efficient transportation system in the perpetual motion age, a totally different, inside-out infrastructure must be built. It is aerocenosis - a hybrid, planned ecosystem of biotic and abiotic species coexisting in the sky. 
There is no particular airport, but rather ubiquitous transportation system, like “blood vessels”, which includes habitat, trading, production and recreation hubs. Citizens enjoy flat-to-flat flights and instant delivery services while mobile devices literally convert all infrastructures in a pocket.  
If such urban aerial infrastructure ever appears, it will occur in Hong Kong, a “city without ground” with its extreme population density and high-rise landscape, rich topography and giant tropical forests, technological innovations potential and total economic dependence on trade routes. Drone highway twists through Hong Kong from current Chek Lap Kok to former Kai Tak Airport, connecting its key points not only physically, but also symbolically."
