Abstract

Historical study of the spatial structure of urban waterfronts reveals two conceptual models which have defined the relationship between water and city. The objective of this paper is to outline a new conceptual model that proposes an alternative idea of urban waterfront. Traditionally, the spatial idea of waterfront is related with that of limit, of a physical and mental boundary between water and land. Like mountain ranges and river courses, coastlines have always been considered natural borders, delineating not just geographical spaces, but political, cultural and social divisions. This idea of waterfront as “front-ier” defines a conceptual model based on the contraposition between water and land. From the Late Middle Ages until mid-19th century, some cities, especially in the Netherlands, have developed waterways as transportation and infrastructure system. This new spatial relation between water and city can be simplified in a conceptual model based on juxtaposition. Transitivity is that particular property of an object that can transfer its own specificities to another object and vice versa. Theoretically, by transitivity, the quality and identity of two different spatialities can be also homologically transposed one to another. Therefore a conceptual model based on transposition can produce spatial correspondence between water and city and their mutual recombination can determine an alternative idea of urban waterfront: a space where the water becomes city and the city becomes water.
