Entry Description

The German air taxi company Volocopter developed the first fully electronic, autonomous vertical take-off and landing aircraft, an ideal solution for use in urban areas. Together with GRAFT and Arup, the Berlin agency GRAFT Brandlab won the competition to design a modular vertiport concept for Volocopter. The result is a flowing space that carefully orchestrates passenger experience and contributes to promoting acceptance of three-dimensional passenger transport. The modular nature of VoloPorts enables a seamless integration of this new form of transport into the existing urban infrastructure.


GRAFT was founded in 1998 in Los Angeles, California by Lars Krückeberg, Wolfram Putz, and Thomas Willemeit and operates internationally in the fields of urban development, architecture, and design. The hybrid office with further locations in Berlin and Shanghai is characterized by its innovative and interdisciplinary design methods and futuristic design language.
