Bari, a new look for the waterfront

30 August 2017

A trendy vacation destination for the hot summer 2017, Puglia takes the opportunity to completely restyle the coastal area that connects Molfetta to Monopoli, passing through the waterfront of Bari

Right here, in the capital city of Bari, along the Imperatore Augusto waterfront between the San Nicola pier and the offices of the port authority, in an area that includes the old harbour and the Sant'Antonio pier, a major redevelopment plan costing approximately 7.9 million Euro will start in 2019

The Gianluigi Sylos Labini architectural firm in Bari prepared the project, winner of an international competition including sixteen competing proposals selected by a committee chaired by the architect Stefano Boeri. 

In addition to the needed redevelopment of the docks, the plan also includes the creation of pedestrian areas and spaces that can host exhibitions. Moreover, steel and resin walkways will follow the outline of the coast and sea and will be placed across from the walls of old Bari. 

All sixteen projects involved in the competition will be presented anyway in a public presentation to be held in September.
