Soft urban policies and “second hand” spaces. Testing innovative planning tools in Bremen

 

ABSTRACT

 

The financial-economic crisis of the most recent years has exacerbated problems in port-cities that had already been affected by the transition from a Fordist to a post-Fordist economy as well as by both social, economic and geo-political changes due to globalisation and the emergence of transhipment systems. The most visible effects of such relevant shift consists of the presence of urban voids and vacant spaces: not only brownfields or abandoned building – ruins of Fordist production processes – witnessing a century-old port-city history, but also unrented shops, apartments or offices. This is why port-cities appear as a privileged place for testing innovative planning tools, given the significant and still problematic presence of abandoned and degraded urban areas that have lost their original functions, with serious consequences on the social and economic sphere. The aim of the paper is to illustrate one of the first temporary use programs established by a municipality in cooperation with an NGO, born from the recognition of the need for new tools to revitalise vacant sites and building stock and to keep young professionals and creatives in town.

The cruise ports of call in China: a new form of harbour development

 

ABSTRACT

 

The port activity in the People’s Republic of China (PRC) has been enriched over the last ten years thanks to the development of maritime cruising. This article focuses on the creation of ports for this new activity. The text stresses the role of the various actors – the central State, the provinces and international cruise lines – with sometimes divergent interests, before arguing that, more generally, cruising is not limited to economic activity but also a political dimension.
