What would a new aircraft be like if it could be designed from scratch?

I just wondered: what would an aircraft be like (the shape, the aerodynamics, the power, the layout, the cockpit instruments, the way you handle and fly it, etc etc...) if there were no conventions from the past you would be influenced by, no backwards compatibility you had to keep, no current airports you would have to accommodate to, nothing would restrict you, you would start with 100% clean sheet and could design the best possible plane.
