Waterfront city

Waterside Regeneration in Scotland

The book shows evolving issues on waterfront regeneration – riverfronts, canalfronts and seafronts – in Glasgow and Edinburgh, hosting the two Scottish cities the most interesting challenges of current times. The book shows the strategies and policies on masterplanning and designing the Waterfront City and its relationship to the morphology of urban block and mixed use development. At the same time it can encourage ideas on research that can shape new conditions for future waterfront change. This book also underlines some viewpoints on how cultural heritage has to be faced properly within regeneration projects and how its preservation is essential to bring back good memory of history on the sites.
