EWWUD 2010 Waterfront Urban Design

The city's ability to successfully develop the means of negotiation with the port is the key to a successful solution for the relocation of port facilities and the revitalization of the old ports on the seafront

If the representatives of the ports favor the efficiency of the maritime activity on the one hand and the municipal leaders seek to improve the quality of life of their citizens then the exchange of good practices between the port cities is necessary, in the sense to support the port in its expansion and relocation, and to produce a regeneration of the urban seafront that integrates neighborhoods and their citizens.

EWWUD 2011 Waterfront Urban Design - An Heritage for the Future

The second edition of the EWWUD European Workshop on Waterfronts of Urban Design completed the work that started in 2010. 

The estuary presenting diverse situation was the motif of covering four other locations: Margueira, Barreiro, Poço do Bispo and Docapesca. The methodology was based on the presentation of these four waterfront situations and the organization about the historic and the geographic conditions, field trips, presentation of lectures conduced by architects involved with new masterplans and technical staff from the municipalities developing work for each particular location on the Lisbon estuary. The research is made prior to the workshop, it intends to create a body of knowledge that is free from political pressures and cross it the projects developed by public or private responsible. The information collected covers a wide range that is useful for defining particularities of local culture.

Migrating movements acknowledge the precariousness of humans, the difficulty to adapt to extreme conditions generated by natural of man made disasters. 

From the architecture an urban design perspective, new questions are raised to respond to change, adapt and to host. The necessary response bring new opportunities that are to be designed but before diving into design proposals the group discussed the present condition of a humanitarian condition using the territory of Cascais as a laboratory.

EWWUD 2017 Waterfront Tagus River Gateway  

In 2017, professors and graduate students gathered in international teams and shared their local expertise. Imaginative solutions inspired by the creativity natural to the academic environment are valuable to raise new questions and address the situation from different perspectives.

In 2016, the previous publications of results of the European Workshop on Waterfront Urban Design (EWWUD) highlighted the impact of climate change and its climate change effects on specific waterfront sites. 

Considering that each year there is an increase of the potential for extreme climate events and of risk, the central question is how to adapt waterfront areas, buildings and public spaces.
