The Urbanisation of the Sea
Nancy Couling, Carola Hein
The space of the North Sea is almost fully planned and it has been loaded with the task of increasing economic production from both new and traditional maritime sectors. At the same time, it has been emptied of cultural significance. Through different projects from academia, art, literature and practice, from analysis to design, The Urbanisation of the Sea explores synergies for designing this new spatial realm.
Port City expert Carola Hein, professor of History of Architecture & Urban Planning at Delft University of Technology, and Nancy Couling, associate professor at the Bergen School of Architecture and researcher of the urbanised sea, combine forces to guide the reader through this complex and fascinating topic.
