The project aims to give a glimpse into a near-future city co-habit with ‘intelligent’ semi autonomous, networked, flying machines and drone’s spaces. This proposal is an investigation of social, political and cultural potential of drone technology as it enters civil space. Drone are used for collecting data. Also It is a trial to find a solution spatial requirements of drones. Drones movements and technical necessaries are primary inputs that are shaped the building.


The building is divided by programs; technic and public. Sunny part of bullring is used for technic spaces to produce energy by bio-reactors. Energy is used for charging drones, storage data and offices. The Drone Field and public space are separated in section for security and technic issues. Drone towers are placed by size and tasks of drones. Drone towers are addable. It can be changed by request or season. Drone tower is visible and watchable to make secret program to public.


La Monumental’s main entrance is cut to take public in plaza. Shadow part of La Monumental is for public programmes. Fab Lab, observation terraces and flexible hall serve citizen.

The process system of data centre of Barcelona is collect data with drones, storage them in hard-discs and share them with public. Each drone has processor. Also the drone tower is able to process every computer parallel. Hence, every single drone tower works as a supercomputer.




how so called ‘smart cities” will live such as autonomous machines.
