Book Talk Series: Urban Waterfront Promenades
Reading - Nonfiction | October 17 | 7-8:30 p.m. | 210 Wurster Hall
UC Berkeley Professor of City and Regional Planning and Landscape Architecture and Environmental Planning explores 38 urban waterfront promenade case studies worldwide, as varied as Vancouver's extensive network, classic promenades in Rio de Janeiro, Stockholm's recently built Hammarby Sjostad eco-district, and the Ma On Shan promenade in the Hong Kong New Territories. The research analyzes their physical form, social use, the circumstances under which they were built, the public policies that brought them into being, and the threats from sea level rise and the responses that have been made.
