The Urban Design Lab in Santo Domingo called “Plan Triangulo – a metropolitan strategy for Ciudad Juan Bosch” is an integrated metropolitan development project. The project proposes to integrate the surrounding informal communities into Santo Domingos new satellite city. With the “5 minutes city” concept we aim to create accessible public spaces at least every five minutes walkable distance. By this, we recreate an inclusive city system that invites all neighbours to enjoy their city with new jobs and recreational areas.
New public transport nodes, such as train and metro stations function as new metropolitan centers with a high concentation of activities and high quality public spaces. Between these nodes, main axes of development with active ground floor areas are created. Place-based solutions offer adapted and specific development perspectives for each neighborhood.
