Foster + Partners' Droneport will launch aerial vehicles to deliver medical supplies in Africa

Created with a minimal ground footprint, the Droneport’s modular vaulted building will be made from local materials like brick and boulders and is designed so that multiple vaults can be joined together for easy expansion. The pilot project is located in Rwanda and will begin in 2016. Once the three initial buildings are completed in 2020, the system will be able to send supplies to 44 percent of Rwanda.
