Port City Atlas: Mapping European Port City Territories
After the soft launch of the Port City Atlas this summer, TU Delft and PortCityFutures, together with nai010 publishers, are organizing the official launch of the Atlas. During the evening, the Atlas will be used to stimulate a dialogue with various experts and decision makers, such as Yvonne van Mil, Carola Hein and others.
5 October 2023 17:30 - 19:00
We will discuss the European and national context of port city territories and zoom in on the territory of the Port of Rotterdam. The focus will be on how the results of the project or mapping-based research can be used to speculate about the future of port territories through education, planning and design.
Authors Carola Hein and Yvonne van Mil will share their expertise and talk with several guests, amongst others: Kersten Nabielek (PBL), Helmut Thoele (Province South Holland), Alankrita Sarkar (Deltametropool), Martijn van Weert (City of the Hague/Port of Scheveningen), Mina Akhavan and Maria Elena Buslacchi (PortCityFutures), Reinout Rutte and Han Meyer (TU Delft), Merten Nefs (Erasmus University) and Paolo De Martino and Matteo di Venosa (University of Pescara).

About the book
Taking a comprehensive, mapping based approach, Port City Atlas visualizes 100 port city territories located on four seas and connected through shared waters. It provides a foundation for comparative analysis beyond case study approaches that are often locked into national contexts, select languages or disciplinary approaches. Conceived as a work of reference, the book makes the case for a sea-based approach to the understanding and design of Europe.
