Foster + Partners Unveils Design for Droneport in Rwanda

Foster + Partners Unveils Design for Droneport in Rwanda | Low Power Heads Up Display | Scoop.it

Foster + Partners has unveiled designs for a droneport in Rwanda, proposed in an attempt to bring more efficient medical care and commercial delivery services to communities in Africa where there is a lack of infrastructure required to meet the population's needs.

The droneport includes a health clinic, a digital fabrication shop, a post and courier room, and an e-commerce trading hub, making it a key civic building in its own local area and its design allows the drones to land safely in a densely packed area.

Scheduled for completion in 2020, the complex of three buildings will allow Redline's network to extend to 44% of Rwanda. Foster + Partners also suggests that subsequent phases of the project could see up to 40 buildings across Rwanda, serving not only the whole country but also neighboring countries including the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

Richard Platt's insight:

Foster + Partners has unveiled designs for a droneport in Rwanda, proposed in an attempt to bring more efficient medical care and commercial delivery services to communities in Africa where there is a lack of infrastructure required to meet the population's needs.   

"Just a 3rd of Africans live within two km's of an all-season road," explains the press release. "It would require unprecedented levels of investment in roads and railways to catch up with the exponential growth in Africa’s population, which is set to double to 2.2 billion by 2050." Foster + Partners instead proposes to leap that development hurdle by making use of 21st century technology - namely drones.

google glass is awesome (and expensive).  an opportunity is to have a pay per use service if its technoogy allows multiple users or is tied to processes instead of people.  we'll see.
