You’ll now look at an extract from the book Aviopolis: A Book about Airports by Gillian Fuller and Ross Harley (2004). Aviopolis is a critical study of airports and their place in social worlds. Using images and texts, it shows how information, architecture, people and machines are converging in the urban form of the airport. The extract combines cultural theory, schematic illustrations, technical photographs, and discourse to explore the airport as an ever-changing temporary city that could be anywhere.
