Beautiful renders!!! Impressive really, with the green natural setting though seems a bit too "Washington"

But instead of building a new city outta scratch why not invest these billions to upgrade infrastructure in Juba and other cities?


All the best South Sudan!

S. Korea to help plan South Sudan's new capital
(AFP)

Quote:
SEOUL — South Korea's state-run land developer said it signed a preliminary deal Thursday to help southern Sudan build a new capital in what will be the world's newest country.

Under the agreement with the government of southern Sudan, LH Corp said it would offer the African country technical support to draw up a master plan.

"Southern Sudan's government, currently based in the southern city of Juba, is considering development of the new capital in line with its new status as an independent state," LH Corp said in a statement.

"We will help the national development of southern Sudan by offering" expertise accumulated over the last 50 years, the company said.

Southern Sudan is set to declare its independence from Sudan on July 9, after voting overwhelmingly for a split in a January referendum.

South Korea is trying to form closer ties with resource-rich African nations through various aid and infrastructure development projects.

I don't like it, it's a non-city.

I heard Juba will stay capital as plans for the new capital were rejected (at least for some time), imo the most wise decision. Why to spend millions on such a useless project as rhino-styled new city when it can be used on improving the existing ones, like buiding new roads, stadiums, schools, libraries.. hmm..

Exactly my thoughts. By improving the infrastructure in the existing cities, it gives a good signal to the population. But if the political elite would build itself a new city from scratch and life there, I fear that they would completely loose touch with the population.

What is wrong is that it's culturally irrelevant. Africans give an image of poeple who are ashamed of their society, their culture, their history. I'm sorry, but nothing tells me that "that's South Sudan" in the design. Just another capital in Africa who misses the opportunity to claim their culture to the world.

But if South Sudanese are ok with that then forget what i've said.
