Baobab

Giancarlo Zema Design Group as Architects

The Chinese giant EHang (NASDAQ: EH) world leader in autonomous air vehicles (“AAV”), launches the first Eco Air Tourist Experience, entrusting the famous Italian architecture firm, Giancarlo Zema Design Group (GZDG) with the design of innovative eco-sustainable vertiports that produce energy and recharge the drones wirelessly. This is how Baobab was born, the first vertiports that integrate into nature: large technological trees on which splendid “birds” rest and feed to admire the large green parks and natural reserves from above. A real revolution in the Air Mobility sector. Baobab stands out in the sky with a 30m high tower, with a steel and laminated wood structure, with 360° windows, refined interiors with a large waiting room, café, 200 sqm panoramic restaurant and connecting lift. On the roof terrace there are green areas with seats and three landing areas for electric drones that are recharged wirelessly from the landing pad floor, the latter consisting of special latest generation non-slip photovoltaic panels, produced by the English company Solapave, able to generate over 300 kW and with integrated LED lights for night lighting and signage. With the Baobab project, EHang conquers the emerging world eco-tourism sector, with developments underway in China in the Forest Lake of Zhaoqing City, the Maldives, the United Arab Emirates and Italy.
