Cidade do Porto e Área Metropolitana do Porto : realidades e desafios
José A. Rio Fernandes
AbstractIt is generally accepted that we are living in a era marked by significant transformations in the most diverse domains, reflected in a profound territorial restructuring, especially in larger and more complex urban areas. Within this framework, and in the case of Oporto in particular - the city and the metropolitan area -, it is our purpose to consider the process of restructuring and its main characteristics, as well as the possible effects of an important number of interventions in course or those foreseen in the next few years. Bearing in mind the metropolis' urban growth, the increasing influence of projects involving several town councils and the strategic need to reinforce competitiveness and equity, we will also seek to defend the need to establish a project and institution with a metropolitan dimension.
