September-December 2016, Bari-Stockholm.
In partnership with the Master Course Studio 4 – AY 2016 – KTH – Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm
The aim of this course was to analyse, understand and suggest sustainable solutions for an evolving and developing city, addressing issues such as population growth, traffic and transport problems, urban agriculture, tourism, environmental sustainability and other factors that are currently poorly planned and controlled.
The city of Bari was analysed with a primary focus on the theme of its waterfront: the long coastline and port area. The area on which the course concentrated first and foremost was the south coast, in particular the seam between the city’s coastal zone and the sea.
Puglia is changing as a result of tourism, migration, intensive agriculture and the expansion of industry, factors that require greater control and direction towards coherent and sustainable development. In particular, Bari, in addition to being the regional capital, is a reference for Puglia as a whole, playing an important role in its growth and as an indicator of the development direction for the rest of the region.
