Summary
"A really smart & accessible look at how everyday practices play out in the architecture of and around airports in Asia. Looks at how the recent rise of air mobility is fueled by and also fuels the current Asia economic boom. Not just looking at airports but also the informal, chaotic-seeming transportation systems that have evolved to service them"--

Note
"In Airport Urbanism, Max Hirsch undertakes an unprecedented study of airport infrastructure in five Asia cities: Bangkok, Hong Kong, Shenzhen, Kuala Lumpur, and Singapore. He examines the exponential increase in international air traffic and its implications for the planning and design of the contemporary city. By investigating the low-cost, informal, and transborder transport systems used by new members of the flying public (such as migrant workers, retirees, and Asia's emerging middle class), he uncovers an architecture of incipient global mobility that has been inconspicuously inserted into places not typically associated with the infrastructure of international air travel"--Page 4 of cover
