Edo State

  • Recognizing the need for a framework to guide future economic and population growth, the Edo District master plan is aimed at providing a vision for the region while developing a new and internationally recognized government and economic center
  • The master plan is split between five phases of development, addressing issues of urban density and connectivity while mediating a complex transportation network, as well as the need for visual and environmental considerations
  • The master plan is formed around three central nodes or sub-districts connected by a series of axial parks and waterways
  • Higher densities are concentrated within the sub-districts and along the axes, gradually tapering off toward the river surrounding the greater portion of the district
  • The circulation network developed from these broad moves is complex but flexible, allowing for a development that’s compatible with the old central city
