STUDY FOR AN URBAN DEVELOPMENT, ANGOLA

APPLIED RESEARCH

Libeskind Design 2014

The overall urban plan is enclosed by green corridors connecting the biotope along the river to the waterfront; a public promenade extends towards the cliff, where the nature lookout park is located.

Green fingers cut through the urban landscape from the inland fluvial biotope to the coast, as progressive transitions from the uncontaminated nature.


Urban magnets, where the main public services are located, are on the waterfront, at the main intersections of the  green belts. 

 

Closely linked to the adjacent parks and predominantly pedestrian, mixed use districts host the commercial and community life of the city.

The urban fabric is conceived as a system of independent neighbourhoods fading from a more urban and compact image on the waterfront to more spontaneous suburban and agricultural typologies.

 

The study on neighbourhoods focuses on a widespread and multicoloured public space to encourage social interaction, while the buildings are designed with a modular approach aiming to reduce costs and use of resources.
