On October 11, presentations of the Waterfront: neighborhood & community teams were held. Four teams that explored the selected territories (Galernaya Gavan, Okhta, a Beach in the South-West of St. Petersburg) told about their experience of communicating with local residents, about different methods of exploring the territory, what was done over the course of nine months and what plans they have for the future. After their presentations, an open discussion was held, which was attended by government representatives, city activists, initiators of private projects and forum guests.
The lecture was also given by the Danish architect Jan Utzon — the son of the famous architect Jorn Utzon, who built the Sydney Opera house. Jan spoke about the projects that he implemented with his father, about the reconstruction of the Sydney Opera house, which he is responsible for, as well as about the principles of the Utzon Associates Architects Bureau (Denmark) and the Utzon Foundation, which supports young architects. This was Jan's first visit to Saint Petersburg.
The highlight of the forum was the opening of the Waterfront urban research exhibition, the exposition of which was located in four cargo containers (one for each team) in the parking lot of Sevkabel Port. At the exhibition, one could see the results of the teams' work and clearly trace all its stages, as well as learn more about the methods that participants used in the course of their research.
