This paper rapidly sketches the technological shifts that have brought about the major spatial changes in port cities and produced the abandoned port areas currently subject to urban transformation. The following landscape analysis of these areas looks at their cultural richness resulting from the long history of natural processes and men’s intervention and imagination, exemplified through the evolution of the port city of Marseille. If city and port have been separated because of technological requirements in the last century and a half, they today tie them together again, and often their spatial and social heritage is regarded as a collective cultural value informing further urban development. This paper then introduces the main ideas of the current Dutch heritage discourse and heritage policy on a theoretical level and in topical regional and urban planning practice, outstanding within the European spatial design debate. Within this debate, site-inspired design seems to occupy a central position, and therefore this paper goes on exploring the notion of site and site thinking as currently theorized in North-American design research, and furthermore quotes from landscape architectural research that examines how site-reading and site-editing has influenced landscape architectural design. Finally, this site reading method is used to examine four recent port transformation projects (Amsterdam, Barcelona, Nantes, Rotterdam) in order to explicit landscape architectural site design strategies, and in which way their site-orientation activates the heritage of the respective port cities.
