Approach

The process for the conceptual and physical development of ANAM city is based on an open and interdisciplinary approach that includes a research, consultation and open-soource design methods. Rather than a linear progression, the process is concurrent, iterative, and fundamentally an evolution of hybridity due to the unique nature of this project. The methodology incorporates phases that balance the many scales of influence as well as the diversity of stakeholders that will be integrated with the new urban fabric. Local cultural knowledge, site specific realities, international standards and continental concerns each informed the scope of research and final recommendations. The results of this process is owned by the stakeholders and open to the world.
