Coastal landscapes across Europe are often characterized by competing land uses: settlements and infrastructure, especially road and train networks, and many industries and commercial zones that benefit from close access to harbours. Conversely, the tourism industry is also a major driving force with its own development dynamics and typical spatial patterns. Finally the urban-land interface is an important and often vulnerable habitat zone for flora and fauna.
Call for papers
Authors are invited to submit papers presenting their reflections and descriptions of actual experiences of urban planning and landscape design concerning coastal landscape. The contributions should deal with themes connected to the subject and their contents might be about theoretical/methodological aspects and/or case studies (e.g. coastal landscape identity and urban history, urban cultures in coastal areas, regeneration of coastal areas, green/blue infrastructure design and planning, public space in coastal areas, coastal landscape and harbours, valorisation of coastal landscapes, participation and democracy in coastal landscape design, etc.) in the international context – in order to set a comparative framework among different national situations, especially in Europe.
