Shores of Karbala

Karbala, Iraq

In 2011 a new masterplan was created for the Shores of Karbala, Iraq.  The goal of this masterplan was to create a correlation of economic, social, cultural and environmental resources into a strategic plan.  There are three main ideas to guide this development:

  1. Creating an efficient city by optimization of densities and urban centers. This is done by using appropriate typologies and sufficient distribution of services and public facilities.
  2. Providing synergies between phasing, investment opportunities, and urban development and infrastructure organizations.
  3. Creating a livable city by designing a metropolitan network of multiple centers, series of permeable environmental systems of public services, neighborhoods and local scale and to create walk-able and pedestrian friendly environments.
