A Tale of Three Waterfronts.....Rotterdam, The Netherlands, Malmo, Sweden & Copenhagen, Denmark
Visionary designs are energizing and reinvigorating moribund waterfront sites by creating compelling new visions for urban revitalization reflective of its time and place. In areas where Port Facilities have been abandoned or declared obsolete, new "cities within cities" have appeared and activated the water's edge. A sampling of new waterfront designs demonstrates the benefits of promoting active mixed-use communities in the urban core serving residents and visitors alike.
Linda Sobuta, FAIA served as a member of the Positive Visions Committee and the Co-Chair of the Northern California Chapter of Architects, Designers Planners for Social Responsibility (ADPSR) for many years. In the early days of ADPSR numerous programs were sponsored by the "Positive Visions Committee" including a five part lecture series called "Housing the City" that dealt with the politics of urban form. Naively, the group invited a few 'lesser known' speakers such as French Architect Jean Nouvel and Professor Josef Kleihuis, who was responsible for the IBA, International Building Exhibition in Berlin. The international perspective of the speakers made an indelible impression on Ms. Sobuta's career going forward and the original Berlin reconstruction project has since altered the vision of the City, proving that positive change is tangible.
