Architects, developers, and urban planners could see the dynamic urban waterfront in a new light in this compendium, filled with illustrations of award-winning projects. Demonstrating various functional uses of waterfront facilities on harbour fronts, shorelines, lakefronts and riverways, the book contains ideas for those planning and designing new waterfront projects. Included are vividly illustrated examples of commercial waterfront development, waterfront parks, boathouses and marinas, waterfront housing, industrial waterfront properties, the artistic/cultural waterfront uses, historic preservation and adaptive reuse. Readers will also see why a jury of nationally known architects award top prizes to the Monterey Bay Aquarium (California); Harbour Town (Hilton Head); Horace Dodge Memorial Fountain (Detroit); Coastal Corporation Terminal (Boston); Cincinnati Gateway Riverwalk; and Roebling Bridge/Delaware Aqueduct (Pennsylvania and New York). Each project description includes a locational and site map and the names and addresses of all participants for obtaining further information. The potential of waterfront property in the United States is enormous - but also poses challenging design problems. "Waterfronts" provides practical as well as creative ideas and designs that should help architectural firms take advantage of waterfront redevelopment in American cities.
