Two Banks


The relations between a waterfront and a city structure are viewed historically. The author gives examples of both positive and negative attitudes of city-planners towards sea and river waterfronts. The author makes a hypothesis that a positive modality of perception of the waterfront encourages a kind and friendly atmosphere in the city.
