Amaravati Government Complex and Master Plan

The Amaravati Government Complex is the first project at the new capital Amaravati in Andra Pradesh, India. The project was awarded via an international competition concluded in March 2106; its first phases are slated for completion in early 2019.

The project site is comprised of four 1 km by 1 km blocks arrayed north to south, facing the Krishna River east of Vijayawada City. It will include the State Legislature, Secretariat, and High Court buildings and an array of related office and housing components - all connected by an extensive landscape development and internal road system.

The urban and landscape designs strive to create an open and accessible city that maintains a human-scale and connections to both the surrounding city and the river. While the site plan divides
