Project introduction:

The project is adressing the pressures on urban waterfront areas and how engineering and architechture solutions in city planning can be cross-fertilized by skills and tools for design and visualization of water in urban context. The project and workshop activities also includes workshop activities with researches and public agencies, drawing on understanding the history of the urban landscape, social sciences, arts and humanities to discuss future urban solutions to cope with consequences of climate change and other pressures on waterfront areas in urban settings.

Participation 2020/21 from Div. History of Science, Technology and Environment: Katarina Larsen

Background to the project and contact at KTH:

During year 2020 the ABE-school at KTH was invited to join an EU-initiative in the H2020-programme ”Stimulating innovation by means of cross-fertilization”. In addition to Swedish participation, other countries involved in this programme is Portugal, Greece and Poland. Project initiatives includes exchange activities and workshops and digital webinars.
