THANH HOA CITY MASTER PLAN
THANH HOA, VIETNAM
Thanh Hoa City commissioned us for an updated comprehensive city plan that guides its future development in the next 20 years. The new plan required
doubling the city’s current population and area—500,000, with vision 1 millions people and 15,000 ha by 2025. Tasks consisted of redefi ning regional and local growth centers, updating the spatial, land use, and transportation plans, and providing urban design for the waterfront and the present downtown (Citadel) districts. The master plan envisioned Thanh Hoa City & its broader metropolitan region to serve multiple functions, fi nancial, economic, and political, and a practical as well as symbolic center (historical and present) for the Region. It was hoped that it would be a model city where development, environment and equity are harmoniously kept in balance.
