New Capital of Equatorial Guinea

A city built from scratch.
New Capital of Equatorial Guinea

The territorial planning of the city of Djibloho – the planned new capital of Equatorial Guinea – is the result of the interrelationship of the river, an organic element, with the orthogonality of the road infrastructures which, in turn, combine with dense vegetation and with the sustainable use of existing water lines. This urban network can accommodate 260,000 inhabitants and the various uses that can be expected on this type of scale, in a project that emphasizes appreciation of local identity.
