Description

Waterfronts, the unique places where land and water meet, are a finite resource, embodying the special history and character of each city. The last decades have witnessed profound changes along abandoned or underused waterfronts, bringing in new pedestrian areas, new business opportunities, and new vitality. This trend is accelerating in cities around the globe. Waterfront Promenade Design seeks to answer the question of how we can go about rejuvenating waterfronts, by promoting good landscape planning and designs.

In total, thirty great waterfront design practices have been selected from all over the world, each with their own unique way of solving the problems posed by their allocated sites. All resulted in more vibrant, accessible, resilient and culturally-rich public spaces, attuned to the needs of their specific location. In order to strengthen the waterfront's coherence and connection, this book pays special attention to the design of traversable space along waterfronts, ensuring that promenades are maintained as pedestrian and cyclist-friendly zones. It also includes a design guide, which could provide strong reference for readers in related fields.
