Case 6: Puerto Madero Waterfront
Edited by Jorge F. Liernur
Throughout the world, cities have been redeveloping their waterfronts and in turn revitalizing their communities. The neighborhood of Puerto Madero, in Buenos Aires, is a prime example of waterfront urban renewal. This book by the Harvard Graduate School of Design traces the progress of the project of Puerto Madero, which until the late 1980s lay idle. It discusses the strategies and implications of the effort, offers a detailed analysis of the landscape, and focuses on the forces of globalization, which have helped drive this and other urban renewal projects around the world. Puerto Madero emerges as a prime case study of current trends in urban revitalization, with all its inherent benefits and drawbacks.
