UK-based architectural firm Broadway Malyan has won an international competition to create blueprint for the transformation of Luanda city, Angola.
The architectural firm will develop a growth strategy for the city and its metropolitan district, which is anticipated to be home to 13 million people by 2030.
Broadway Malyan will analyse the city’s geography, socio-economic conditions, morphology, infrastructure and environmental context over the next 12 months, to prepare the blueprint.
The data will be used to prepare a sensitive and sustainable, long-term urban renewal and growth plan.
After consultation, the plan will influence policies for governing land-use allocations and planning controls across Luanda’s municipalities for the next 20 years.
Broadway Malyan will lead a team of consultants including Urbinveste, Deloitte, Aurecon, Mobility-in-Chain and the Universidade Nova de Lisboa, and will work with the Luanda Institute of Planning and Urban Management to deliver the project.
Broadway Malyan director James Rayner said: "This appointment is a further success for our global team of expert masterplanners and designers, as well as our strategy to grow our project portfolio in Sub-Saharan Africa, on the back of our track record for partnering with clients to deliver visions for entire new cities, strategic city-wide development, city extensions and neighbourhoods."
