Martin is a Young Researcher and a doctoral student at the Faculty of Architecture of the University of Ljubljana, Slovenia. Before returning to his hometown, he obtained his MSc degree in Integrated Urbanism and Sustainable Design (IUSD) at the University of Stuttgart, Germany. In his research project, he is combining his interests in investigating the social, cultural and spatial impacts of contemporary urban transformations with the concepts of resilience, path dependence and spatial justice in port cities. Supervised by Assoc. Prof. Lucija Ažman-Momirski, it will base on a comparison between three northeastern Adriatic port cities: Trieste (IT), Koper (SI) and Rijeka (HR); which are, despite their geographical proximity and historical correlation, witnessing entirely divergent pathways of development. Specific focus will be given to the critical interpretation of different governance models, spatial policies and design methods, and the possibility to apply innovative planning approaches in which the local communities can actively participate in the co-creation of more sustainable port-city regions.
