La extensa red de canales navegables que se desarrolló en Europa durante los siglos XVIII y principios del XIX se convirtió paulatinamente, con la llegada del ferrocarril y posterior proliferación del automóvil, en un sistema obsoleto para el fin para el que se creó. Desde 1990 vemos sin embargo, cómo los canales de transporte, uno de los iconos de...
The historic water supply to large cities constitutes a constructed heritage characterised by comprising a range of public structures—dams, canals, tanks, siphons and aqueducts—over a large geographical area. Within this international context, this paper looks at the case of Canal de Isabel II (CYII) and its historic infrastructure, built in the se...

Documenting and disseminating the public works heritage have now come of age, digitally speaking, with the adoption of new technologies both to further research on and heighten the esteem attributed to the public works heritage.

A lo largo de los siglos XVIII y XIX se construyó en Europa una extensa red de canales. Su desarrollo permitió la conexión del territorio, en donde los puntos de intercambio y confluencia de rutas comerciales formaron focos de actividad. Estos lugares, situados en su momento en la periferia, pronto empezaron a conformar ámbitos de crecimiento urban...

This canal network has built and connected territories, where confluence places of exchange and commercial routes formed focal points of activity and urban gro...

Urban waterways have undergone a transformation from industrial canals and navigation corridors towards focal points for revitalization and urban development. But, what new roles and values do the canals have as part of sustainable cities de...
