Elevation, produced by Dezeen, explores how drones will transform cities. “Aerial highways” will relieve pressure on roads as deliveries and human transportation take to the skies. Architecture will change dramatically as the ground floor entrance is replaced by rooftop landing. This utopian vision is set out in the film, which features interviews with architects and industry experts including Norman Foster, Paul Priestman, Liam Young, and Anab Jain.
The Architecture & Design Film Festival: D.C. is presented by the National Building Museum with the Revada Foundation.
