Master Studio Changing Cities: Port Cities Presentation and discussion with students and teachers from ENSA Paris Malaquais on the Studio Changing Cities and port-city development during the visit to Delft. Over the past three decades, massive globalization has resulted in the rapid expansion of the major container port-cities, creating vast intermodal logistic centers, impacting local cultures and atomizing any sense of community. In many cases there has been no proper environmental or social planning to consolidate local geographical conditions or customs, the economic and global reasoning have prevailed above all. The studio sets to explore the impact (social and environmental) of the exponential growth of container supply chains, on three major port-cities (Rotterdam, Singapore and Hong Kong), their neighboring territories and related land and maritime routes. The studio will be interdisciplinary, combining a tripartite approach between professors in architecture, landscape design and sociology. The courses will be bilingual (French and English) and bicultural.
