A new satellite town to Lima

UI Studio has been commissioned to develop a vision and concept masterplan for a new satellite town to the Peruvian capital Lima. The 800ha project site is located thirty kilometres to the south of the capital in the foothills of the Andes and overlooking the Pacific Ocean. It benefits from direct access to the capital via the Transamerican highway. Currently growth around Lima is characterised by uncoordinated and fragmented urbanisation, which also threatens agricultural and open lands in the Pachacamac valley. In this context the site provides an opportunity to comprehensively plan for future growth in a sustainable way.
