    <p>Nowadays many seaside towns, economically based on marine tourism, need operations to reinvent and recovery their own image and to define a new strategy of urban development. The presence of the sea is of primary importance and it should be considered not only as an economic resource, but mainly as a strong element of identity that must interact with the urban landscape.<br />The project of Viserba’s waterfront faces these issues and it tries to answer them through a unique urban plan.

    <p>Haliç (The Golden Horn) is a mythical place that belongs not only to the history of Istanbul but to the whole of Europe.
