Location: Lurin, Peru
Status: Schematic Design
Type: Master Plan
Ecological industrial parks (EIP) are gaining traction as an innovative model of urban development due to their ability to catalyze a future in which communities flourish through the junction of sustainable practices and industry. EIPs offer a model for economic development based on the equal valuing of increasing productivity, improving resource management, and enhancing environmental sustainability. The design for the ‘Eco-Parque Lurin’ integrates close to 400 hectares of industry with a green network of roads and parks that function as a waste-to-energy system by reducing pollution and recycling surplus manufacturing waste for the benefit of the community. Spatially, the master plan for the ‘Eco-Parque Lurin’ develops a series of concentric rings that respond to the existing topography. Through interlocked rings create a network of bio-based facilities and industrial zones that manage energy, water, waste, and services.
The goal of the design for the ‘Eco-Parque Lurin’ is to create an integrated community of manufacturing and service businesses that work together to enhance environmental, economic, and social performance. The magic of Eco-Parque Lurin is that clients are more than just tenants and instead become members of a community that is proudly helping Peru grow responsibly and inclusively.
