Brazil adopts Broadway Malyan plan for new city
A masterplan vision designed by Broadway Malyan has been officially launched for a new city in north eastern Brazil.
Broadway Malyan’s client for the work at the city of Convida Suape is Moura Dubeux Engineering & Cone.
Convida Suape is designed to be a sustainable urban extension of the city of Cabo de Santo Agostinho near Recife, the capital city of the State of Pernambuco. It will result in the transformation of a 470ha area to accommodate up to 100,000 inhabitants.
The practice’s design was delivered by an integrated team of masterplanners, urban designers, architects, landscape architects and branding specialists based in its São Paulo, Lisbon and London offices.
The city will be built in four phases with ten distinct neighbourhoods providing 25,000 new homes set in 154ha of open space, as well as substantial provision for new businesses, health, education and leisure activities.
Practice director Margarida Caldeira said: “Convida Suape will set a benchmark for strategic urban development and city expansion projects in North Eastern Brazil, now one of the fastest growth areas in the world. The launch is testament to the integrated work of our world-class team of design experts delivering on our client’s ambitions in partnership with its stakeholders.”
