In many cities around the world, policymakers, planners, and developers are envisioning the waterfront as a space of promise and a prime location for massive investments. Currently, the waterfront is being marketed as a crucial territorial wedge for economic ascendancy in globally competitive areas.
Reshaping Toronto’s Waterfront (University of Toronto Press) analyzes how and why problem spaces on the waterfront have become opportunities. Contributors with diverse areas of expertise illuminate processes of development and provide fresh analyses of the intermingling of nature and society as they appear in both physical forms and institutional arrangements, which define and produce change.
How do you envision a friendly, accessible waterfront?
