The Project

With the HOVSAN site at its core, four future BRANCHES of regional development were identified to form the core concept of the master plan. The concept of the four central towers was developed as an iconic architectural statement to mirror the four regional branches of development. The plan of HOVSAN utilizes the idea of an urban grid with a central focus in the form of a green open space. This ceremonial open space visually connects four iconic towers on its southern edge with the government complex of buildings on its northern edge. The Master plan organizes the tallest buildings in the city center. As the buildings move away from the center, they gently decrease in height and density, thus creating a unique and recognizable skyline for this new district. This project was designed in conjunction with Philip Johnson | Alan Ritchie Architects (PJAR) and Argos design.
