DEEP WATER PORT IN THE CARIBBEAN SEA
Proposal for a Deep Water Port in the Caribbean Sea that will link with all of the commercial routes connecting with South America. The intervention hosts a Commercial Port, Cruise Port and Artisan Fishing Port.
The architectonical approach arouses from a territorial approach disposing three concatenated curves resembling sea waves, generating each of them the different ports that are planned.
It is intended that the current port will be a Fifth Generation Port, is for this, that attending to infrastructures, a good terrestrial communication network, railway and air connections are planned. Beside to the commercial port there is located an Industrial area that will act at the same time as free-tax zone and large logistic platform.
The project is placed in a city that has historically lived backwards to the sea, as for this, the proposed master plan appears as an unequaled opportunity to invert this situation, and allow the city begin living facing the sea, true main character of it, and a key factor in the city foundation.
