Local Area Planning Imageable Community Precinct: Social & Institutional Hub Ward 81N, Kishanganj was taken up for local area planning. A detailed Urban Design study was carried out to identify issues of the built environment that linked with personal issues of the people. Meticulous studies were done and several rounds of interviews and large scale community meetings were held to bring out issues of the local people by the community itself. A design was then proposed for the ward keeping in mind the issues highlighted in the meeting and a detailed design was done for a cultural and institutional hub linking all different communities together.

Reviving the Ring Railway, Delhi Redesign of Sewanagar Railway Station as a hub of cultural and historical importance for the city The precinct around Sewa Nagar Railway Station on the Delhi Ring Railway was under detailed Urban Design study. The study was done on various aspects like historical evolution, Ecology, Morphology, Open spaces, Activity, Transportation, Socioeconomic characteristics, Social and Physical Infrastructure and the future of the area as seen by the master plan 2021 and other trends witnessed in the city. The zone was found to be largely a government residential area with high cultural instituition presence and very strong links with its context.

Capital City Study, Jaipur Mansarovar Commercial Hub Development One section of the outskirts of the city of Jaipur was taken up for detail Urban Design study. The area was studied on the basis of its historical evolution, mprphology, character districts, everyday spaces and the users of the space. The area was found to be splitted by the New Sanganer Road into dense urbanisation and sparse development zones. The site chosen for design demonstration was the commercial center of the residential area of Mansarovar. The design program included office commercial, retail commercial, housing and community facilities.

Maritime Museum, Muscat Thesis Project The thesis project set in Muttrah, Muscat aims at responding to the redevelopment of the port and providing common interactive spaces for the locals while at the same time educating them and tourists about Oman’s Maritime history. The museum is seen as a place of recreation along with exhibition spaces as important components of the program. The design is focussed on respecting the existing architecture and reinstating its imagibility. The concept also responds to the strong context that surrounds the site in the form of connectivity, views, and using the natural slope of the two hillocks present on site.

Neola Khanpur Housing Project Housing Studio The project aims to design housing for 7,500 dwelling units across all sections of the society, connecting the villages of Chawla and Neola Khanpur in Najafgarh.

proposed site

The settlement presents an appropriate interface with the city, to which the city responds as well. The city edges are taken up by offices, medical facilities and high income group housing.

The main idea

A typical sector was designed with a mix of MIG, LIG and EWS housing areas and their interfaces and relationships were worked out. This sector was seen as a prototype to design the housing settlement for connecting the two aforementioned villages.

The Green Dhalao From waste to life (community space design competition) This project was a competition for a community space design. A dhalao is a garbage dump. In a typical Indian city, early morning, at a scheduled time, the ‘kachra’ man or woman goes around the locality to collect the garbage bags from each household and dumps them in the closest dhalao. The vision was to visualize the Dhalao not just as a neglected infrastructure but as an asset to the community, the dhalao was seen to be a place of regenerating energy and an opportunity to educate the community to strengthen the relationship between the community and the Dhalao.
