Part of our year-long research and education program, last week we were hosted by IUAV for a 7 days intensive workshop on possible paths forward for Porto Marghera, exploring 4 interfaces: 1. Port–Airport; 2. Port-City; 3. Port-Regional Production/Città Diffusa; 4. Port-Lagoon. The workshop was part of our IED Infrastructure and Environmental Design Course/Annotation, counting with 20 MSc students from different faculties/ departments at TUDelft and Post-MSc EMU students. .
During the week we had 4 distinctive lectures on the history, environmental economics, urban programming and forms of labor, and the territorial project of Porto Marghera. As a special guest, we had the honor of having the President of Port of Venice, dott. Pino Mussolino, together with the Head of Planning Department, dott. Antonio Revedin, discussing Port of Venice’s future vision and development strategy. The outcomes of this intensive week are now being further develop by our students and will be discussed during our upcoming Symposium at the Dutch Pavillion on June 14th. Stay tuned for more updates! .
In close collaboration with prof. Paola Viganò (Urbanism IUAV), prof. Maria Chiara Tosi (Urbanism IUAV), and the Port of Venice. With support of TUDelft-DIMI Delft Deltas, Infrastructure, and Mobility Initiative.
