Over 40 representatives of institutional and professional organisations came together on 1 December 2020, to discuss the future of the 26 hectares of port land and docks at the La Citadelle site in Le Havre (France). At the entrance to the city, just a short distance from the station, cruise terminal and recently developed Nelson Mandela esplanade, a new symbol of the interface between the City and Port, La Citadelle is already home to the cross-Channel ferry terminal, the Higher School of the Merchant Navy, the port’s HQ, and several of its technical workshops. Around this pivotal site, the future relationship between the city and port of Le Havre will be shaped in the coming years.
By carrying out the integration of the Port Urban District, Citythinking will respond to the needs of this area of Seville (Spain) and the city as a whole from different, enriching perspectives in AIVP.
