Making telling use of hundreds of photographs, Ann Breen and Dick Rigby analyze key waterfront developments from around the world in seven major themes: commercial (public enjoyment of the waterfront via cafes and restaurants, hotels, shopping and socializing); cultural and educational (in which museums and concert halls, ecological parks and modern aquariums are made attractive and accessible); historic (with a focus on the structures of past generations, modernized to take into account today's needs and tastes); recreational (parks and walkways, marinas and play areas); residential (urban projects rather than resorts); and working waterfronts (featuring today's continued industrial uses of center-city waterfronts, an often-forgotten aspect of the new waterfront). The authors also select some of the most dramatic waterfront makeovers for inclusion in a separate chapter on "Major Transformations". These include vast projects, but also smaller efforts with significant community impact. Dozens of schemes are discussed in detail, and nearly a hundred are put into context in the illustrated gazetteer at the end of the book, revealing waterfront regeneration as a truly universal phenomenon of our time. Authoritatively written, meticulously researched and spectacularly illustrated, The New Waterfront is an indispensable resource for architects, urban planners, developers, landscape designers and students - a book that will also have a much wider appeal for anyone lured by the attraction of the water's edge.
