Masterplan for a new green city in Brazil, including residential, business, health, education and leisure provision

Broadway Malyan was appointed to prepare the masterplan for a new ‘smart city’, providing a liveable and cosmopolitan environment for 100,000 people on a 470-hectare site near Recife, Brazil.

The name Convida translates as ‘welcome invitation’ and the master plan provides a range of social and community facilities, natural spaces and civic amenities to improve the perception and offer of this inland suburb for both new and existing residents.

Key features of the master plan include a university, city hospital, arena stadium, industrial and business park facilities, as well as 25,000 new homes. The scheme is to be built over 4 sequential phases of development over the next 15 years.


Sustainability was at the heart of the design, which promotes a compact urban model for walkability and features green buildings.

The natural landscape and river corridors are enhanced through a substantial and ongoing habitat restoration programme.
