Envisaging L'Aquila
edited by Alessandro Coppola

Airports, cities, regions

How can airports be perceived as part of the urban structure? Which economic effects foster spatial development? Which policy approaches exist to tackle the various conflicts in the airport-region relationship?

These questions were addressed at the colloquium “From Airport City to Airport Region?”, held in July 2009 at the University of Karlsruhe. In a time of continued development and transformation of transportation infrastructure, the colloquium set the focus on the interrelation between airports and their region.

The proceedings of the colloquium are now published in an open-access book which can be found here: http://uvka.ubka.uni-karlsruhe.de/shop/isbn2shopid.php?isbn=978-3-86644-506-2
