Terminologies 

Development Plan: A development plan defines the policy framework and land use proposal that will be used to guide development decision within a specified area.

Ahmedabad Urban Development Authority (AUDA) is a planning authority and largely covers the Ahmedabad urban agglomeration (AUA) area and more.

Municipal corporation, city corporation, Mahanagar Palika, Mahanagar Nigam or Nagar Nigam or Nagara Sabha is a local government in India that administers urban areas with a population of more than one million.

Metropolis: A large city or conurbation which is a significant economic, political and cultural center for the country or region and an important hub for regional or international connections, commerce, and communications.

Gamtal= Village

Ward= Electoral sub division

Project brief: The project objective was to design the

The project attempts to synthesize the multiple determinants and developmental processes along with the enabling tools and mechanisims.

Urban design is seen as a part of a larger system. Particular emphasis is on environmental factors, human intervention and historicity.

extension of the existing urban fabric; adressesing principles of site planning, natural features and environmental, typology/morphology, density patterns etc.

Present Scenario Sanand is one of the satellite towns of Ahmedabad, India. It has gained prominence in recent years with the onset of industries especially automobile industries . Owing to this fact, Sanand is known as the emerging automobile hub in the country. The challenge of the urban extension is how to fuse the new urban development envisaged to the existing settlement context of the city.

Issues

Sanand is a small town, where some of the people are still engaged in farming. Since, it is been developed as auto mobile hub, the agriculture land is been acquired by the farmers for Industrial development.

1.3 Regional Connectivity

Objective: • •

To understand the process of Urban Extension, To evaluate the potential and the environment condition of the site with respect to new development. and device new development strategies

A structure plan is a framework to guide the development or redevelopment of an area by defining the future development and land use patterns, areas of open space, the layout and nature of infrastructure (including transportation links), and other key features and constraints that influence how the effects of development are to be managed. Residential Mixed Use Commercial Use Industrial use Public use Agriculture

Urban Extension: a case of Sanand town; a satellite town of Ahmedabad, India The CPUL concept Continuous productive urban landscape (CPUL) is an urban design concept of integrating food growing into the design of cities through joining together existing open spaces and disused sites into liner landscape that connects to the courtyards. It provides- a strategic and associative framework for the theoretical and practical exploration of productive landscapes with contemporary urban design. It describe the vision for a sustainable urban future. It is a design concept advocating the coherent introduction of interlinked productive landscape into cities as an essential element of sustainable urban infrastructure. The concept also creates multi- functional open space network that compliment and support the built environment. Key features- Urban Agriculture, outdoor open spaces (leisure or commercial), natural habitats, ecological corridors and circulation routes for non- vehicular traffic.

Fig. 8 Example : The above figure is of London LeisurEscape A CPUL proposal connecting public art gallery, the Tate Modern, in central London to the town of East Croydon at the edge of London. The image shows how parts of parks may be given over to productive landscapes including urban agriculture and selected roads be " greened " without compromising other uses. Image: Bohn&Viljoen Architects, 2003.

Conclusion: Urban agriculture could indeed make a significant contribution to fruit and agriculture requirements and built environment

1.5 The Concept: Continuous Productive Urban Landscape


Urban Extension: a case of Sanand town; a satellite town of Ahmedabad, India

Protecting natural features present on site and in its surrounding.

Maintaining the existing fields located near lake and canal.

Connecting the two existing settlement on a common ground

Providing city level public realm area

Site Analysis

Community Participation

Public Realm

ď‚Ą

The objectives of neighborhood planning are-

1.

To sensitively integrate into the established urban form.

2.

To built new typology in desire to create productive landscape with good communal spaces.

3.

To manifest the public realm of dialogue and differentiations, of unity and diversity, of the individual and the collective creation of a complex blending of faiths, acts and aspirations.

Transition Space like Courtyards , Otla etc

1.6 Site analysis, Abstract and Concept

`

Sanand town has many small lakes ,catchments and canals. The land adjoining to canal is used for farming. My concern is to develop the Sanand as an urban extension with continuous productive urban landscape which will bring a new development in cognizance with the existing agricultural activities and emerge as a new form of urbanism
