Aerotropolis Summary

Aerotropolis: The Way We'll Live Next by John Kasarda

From Dubai to Amsterdam, Memphis to South Korea, a new phenomenon is reshaping the way we live and transforming the way we do business: the aerotropolis. A combination of giant airport, planned city, shipping facility and business hub, the aerotropolis will be at the heart of the next phase of globalization. Drawing on a decade's worth of cutting-edge research, John Kasarda and Greg Lindsay offer a visionary look at how the metropolis of the future will bring us together - and how, in our globalized, 'flat' world, connecting people and goods is still as important as digital communication. Airport cities will change the face of our physical world and the nature of global enterprise. Aerotropolis shows us how to make the most of this unparalleled opportunity.

Aerotropolis Reviews

An essential guide to the 21st century. -- Tom Vanderbilt, author of Traffic
Thanks to the manifold effects of modern aviation, earth and sky are merging in our world faster and more thoroughly than most people know. But you won't be most people after reading Aerotropolis. Throw out your old atlas. The new version is here. -- Walter Kirn, author of Up in the Air
A fascinating window into the complex emergent urban future. This book is an extremely sophisticated, often devastatingly witty and ironic, interpretation of what is possible over the next two decades. It is not science fiction. It is science and technology in action. The authors have one foot firmly planted in the possible and foreseeable. -- Saskia Sassen, Professor, Columbia University, author of Territory, Authority, Rights
Aerotropolis presents a radical, futuristic vision of a world where we build our cities around airports rather than the reverse. This book ties together urbanism, global economics, international relations, sociology, and insights from adventures in places that aren't even on the map yet to present a plausible new paradigm for understanding how we relate to the skies. Perhaps the most compelling book on globalization in years. -- Parag Khanna, Senior Fellow, New America Foundation, and author of How to Run the World
Very few people realize how profoundly air transport is changing our cities, our economies, our social systems, and our systems of governance. If you want to be way ahead of the curve in understanding one of the most important drivers of change for the 21st century, read this book. -- Paul Romer, Senior Fellow, Stanford Institute for Economic Policy Research
Aerotropolis redraws the world map, using air routes to trace the new connections and competition between mega-regions that will shape the geography of the Great Reset. This lively, thought-provoking book is must reading for anyone interested in how and where we will live and work in a truly global era. -- Richard Florida, director of the Martin Prosperity Institute, University of Toronto and author of The Great Reset
Aerotropolis comprehensively explains the enormous effects modern aviation has on cities and countries around the world. It is a unique resource. -- Frederick W. Smith, Chairman and CEO, FedEx Corporation
[The] prose is remarkably readable, laying out complex, interlocking ideas in a simple, unfussy, often quietly witty fashion...It's the contemporary analyses which really astound...it's hard not to get carried along by their messianic enthusiasm...Aerotropolis works superbly as a unique insight into the nuts-and-bolts reality of our global society. -- Tom Huddleston * Time Out *
This book discusses the future of the built environment, air transport, logistics and all the parts of globalised economy where aircraft are vital... As a book about the near future, Aerotropolis is convincing... -- Robin Mannings * Engineering and Technology *
