Great Waterfronts of the World
Menção honrosa para o Porto na categoria "Best Waterfront Cities" e a Ribeira com um 9º lugar na "Best Waterfront Places" num ranking do Project for Public Spaces
"Perhaps the best of many great waterfronts destinations of Portuguese origin around the world, the Ribeira District is simple and compact yet supports a wide variety of activity. Set in an historic district, much of the public area has been redesigned with contemporary materials and amenities. The new design features are very attractive, functional, and in no way ostentatious, serving as a sort of flexible platform for activities and supporting a range of gathering options for groups. Children play, tourists drink port in cafes, elderly friends talk and stroll. Automobiles pass through on a narrow channel with a low curb, so that drivers move through the space with less priority than pedestrians."
Qual seria a posição com as duas marginais recuperadas na totalidade? A vivência humana dos espaços é um critério fundamental no ranking.
