Rouen to get a “pop-up” port center during the Armada 2023

The gathering of remarkable ships takes place every four years at the quays in Rouen (France), attracting millions of visitors. It is an excellent opportunity to give the general public an insight into the port and its activities. This year, HAROPA PORT is setting up a special “Port Center” pavilion that will be open to the public for the ten days of the Armada, from the 8th to 18th of June. Visitors to the pavilion will have access to a range of educational materials, including VR goggles with a virtual tour of the port infrastructures. There will also be talks and lectures daily, with contributions from professionals and scientists. The idea behind this unique temporary Port Center experiment was supported by the AIVP.

New York City invests $33 million to rehabilitate its waterfront parks

Six different projects are set to be launched on the waterfront in New York (United States), including in the district of Queens, to restore green spaces that were destroyed by Hurricane Sandy. The NYC authority aims to fund parks that are not only more pleasant for the public, but more resilient and capable of withstanding storms. Some of these parks could host cultural events, as requested by local residents’ groups and elected representatives.

Singapore: A smart Port-City for greener digitalization

Singapore’s Government Technology Agency has announced that it will spend US$2.4 billion over the course of 2023-2024 to support a greener digitalization and support the national goal of achieving net-zero emissions in the public sector by 2045. Digitalization is a key factor in helping the port and transport sector decarbonize through the use of intelligent monitoring, automated resource optimisation and digital twins to meet environmental goals but it is also expected that the carbon footprint produced from these technologies will grow exponentially by 2030. As Singapore has become a living laboratory for smart city solutions, it is important that it also maintains an eye on its carbon footprint from all sources.

The main goal of the call is the study of formal and compositional aspects of ports as infrastructures and of port clusters as exceptional spatial formations. This goal is crucial as it contributes to claiming the design of port infrastructure in the field of architecture. The deadline for short abstracts is July 3rd, 2023. Contributions are expected from PhD students, researchers, scholars, professors and professionals in the field of urban and architectural design, as well as social sciences.

[Webinar] From port city visions to strategies
[Webinar] From port city visions to strategies

What are the best tools to plan a sustainable port-city relationship? How is it possible to engage with stakeholders and citizens in the development and implementation of such tools? What are the appropriate scales and timelines? These are just some of the questions that we would like to discuss during the next Conference: AIVP Venice 2023 on November 16-18. However, we cannot wait until we meet in Venice, so we would like to start the debate with a webinar on the 15th of June at 16:00, just after our General Assembly. We will hear from the presidents of ports such as Quebec and Venice and learn how they are managing these issues and their planning tools. During the webinar, we will also present the main elements of the promising program the AIVP has put together for the next conference.
