Description/Abstract

"The primary goal is to develop the area around the ferryboat terminal of San Juan waterfront, understanding such issues as:

-the importance of the bay and the role that the city of Old San Juan played in it as its physical entrance.

-definiteion of the waterfornt edge...

-the connection of Old San Juan to other areas of the metropolitan area through the new ferryboat system...

-ideas of representation, of historical continuity between the traditional and modern architecture, an understanding of the old fabric and how we can complement it, without imitating it or opposing it."
