Focused on a government-sponsored design competition aimed at redeveloping the historic waterfront district of Antwerp, this catalogue presents reproductions of plans and models (accompanied by substantial commentaries) for ten notable proposals submitted by international architects and planners. Seven lengthy, well-illustrated essays offer detailed analyses of the problems addressed by the designs, trace the evolution of the port area of Antwerp from the Middle Ages to the present, consider earlier utopian plans for the site, and evaluate the form, character and redevelopment of dockland regions in Baltimore, London, Barcelona, Rotterdam and other European and American cities.
