Strasbourg: restoring the Port to the heart of the City

Interview with Emilie Gravier, Director of Port Development and Promotion,
Port Autonome de Strasbourg – PAS

“Once at the heart of the medieval and modern city, the port of Strasbourg was for most of the 20th century located on a site some distance away. The city has now expanded to join the port on the banks of the Rhine, restoring the port of Strasbourg to its urban character, and adding extra responsibility,“ explains Emilie Gravier. The response includes a raft of measures, including developments in the port’s central zone in conjunction with urban projects in the Deux-Rives district, actions to improve urban mobility and optimising traffic flows, better integration between the port, city and natural environment, efforts to ensure the best use of port spaces and landscaping, and citizen-facing initiatives. All of these measures are intended to reflect the additional layer of responsibility and optimise city-port integration.

Ibiza, Balearic Islands. The great port-city transformation

Denis DAVOULT13 December 2017

An interview with Mr Joan GUAL DE TORRELLA GUASP, Chairman of the Port Authority of the Balearic Islands

Going for a stroll around Ibiza’s Marina today bears little resemblance to what the residents of this beautiful Mediterranean town, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, experienced less than a decade ago. The port on the largest of the Balearic Islands has seen considerable change over the last 15 years and is in the midst of a unique restyling project.
