The Integral Landscape Project of Palmas, Brazil, acts as transformative base for a thriving future to unfold-for the future urban development and identity of an entire city and its people. By addressing such diverse issues like building neighborhood identity, economic growth and ecologies of changing climates, a pioneering and yet flexible urban strategy should emerge.

This Project proposes a landscape based urban strategy - where landscape systems become the base for negotiating chances and challanges of a vibrant city to unfold.

The Palmas Integral Lanscape Project is then enabling environmental and economic synergies through systematic interaction in addresing local conditions and community - embedded in the global context of changing climates, cultures and economies.
