In the heart of the equatorial forest, the hills and Wélé River are outstanding advantages for the creation of this modern administrative capital: the city of Oyala.
The approach adopted in developing Egis' proposal was to “adapt to the site rather than impose on the site”. Urbanisation that is as un-intrusive as possible is envisaged, designed to reveal and enhance the region's landscape. Covering an area of 3,000 hectares, the built areas alternate with green spaces and the whole is ringed by a road running along the fringe of the forest.
Egis is providing diagnostic analysis, programming and the master plan and preliminary design for the major public areas.
