the life of the airports
listlab - italia / international institute of architecture - switzerland

This book is a product of the research infrarealities - unraveling the management and maintenance of the urban condition, organized by i2a - international institute of architecture. Infrarealities aims at building awareness on infrastructural development of the contemporary territory and the political-administrative questions that this implies. In this context, the book aims to clarify the relationship of balance and imbalance, paradoxes, ambiguities, and hidden potentials that arise between an airport and its context. Indeed, as any other infrastructure, the airport is not a static territorial entity, but a living structure, involved in a continuous process of development and restructuring that affects airport facilities and the surrounding environment. The book, edited with Nuria Casais, hosts photographic essays by Donatello e Giuseppe de Mattia.
