05.03.2018Ribeira Forum

Fundación RIA, initiated by David Chipperfield, was invited to be part of a panel discussion on the role of pedestrianisation in the future development of the port town of Ribeira, Galicia. Taking place on 1 March, Peonalización de Ribeira was initiated and moderated by the local newspaper La Voz de Galicia. Participants included the Mayor of Ribeira, Manuel Ruiz Rivas; local architect Carlos Henrique Fernandez Coto; as well as Antonio Miranda, Chairman of the local trade unions.


Discussing the city’s infrastructure and the urban identity, Manuel Rodriguez from Fundación RIA, argued that pedestrianisation should not be considered as an end in itself, but rather one tool in a more integrated urban approach.
