Abstract

The port world is genetically disposed to changes and challenges. Overcome limits of size, speed, efficiency and expense implies a search for solutions that are constantly improving; in this process, new standards are set and risks are implicitly involved. The urgent drive towards updating, though, produces opportunities for innovation in the technological field, but also in architectural and urban ones. This is particularly true in those urban-port frameworks – i.e. the Italian port city of Genoa – where the lack of flat space, combined with the environmental and morphological fragility of the coast, has generated an exceptional catalog of spatial configurations.
