Genova presented the major projects designed for its port over the past 30 years, which were success full in shaping the dialogue between city and port. The exhibition entitled “The Port Front. Vision of the Contemporary” has gathered a rich material production of ideas and design solutions that bring together vision and reality, separating the “imaginary city”, with the utopia of hypothetical projects, from the “real city”, characterized in particular by places of architectural interest and landscapes located between earth and sea, with the ultimate objective of creating a permanent observatory to monitor the urban transformation process taking place within the limits of the city-port waterfront zone. The first edition, beside the Affresco by Renzo Piano, exhibits international contributions to the new Port Master Plan by OMA and architects Sola-Morales, and the project to build a tunnel under the port. The second displays the four proposals that preceded the drafting of the port plan; the third, finally, is a compendium of projects designed after the beginning of the millennium and addressing the theme of the waterfront.

Abstract

Genova presented the major projects designed for its port over the past 30 years, which were success full in shaping the dialogue between city and port. The exhibition entitled “The Port Front. Vision of the Contemporary” has gathered a rich material production of ideas and design solutions that bring together vision and reality, separating the “imaginary city”, with the utopia of hypothetical projects, from the “real city”, characterized in particular by places of architectural interest and landscapes located between earth and sea, with the ultimate objective of creating a permanent observatory to monitor the urban transformation process taking place within the limits of the city-port waterfront zone. The first edition, beside the Affresco by Renzo Piano, exhibits international contributions to the new Port Master Plan by OMA and architects Sola-Morales, and the project to build a tunnel under the port. The second displays the four proposals that preceded the drafting of the port plan; the third, finally, is a compendium of projects designed after the beginning of the millennium and addressing the theme of the waterfront.
