The approach to urban development in Taj Ganj envisages enriching its life through contemporary design; respecting and retaining its essence and spirit and not blindly emulating the past. The project attempts to sew together disparate urban edges that are commercial, institutional, parks, bazaars, old city fabrics and the slums. This is to present new perspectives of the city that emerge from the multiple layers that have been created over time. The strategy advocates an inclusive policy towards the most valued stakeholders-namely the shopkeepers and local residents of Taj Ganj and primarily involves improving the street character and upgrading the basic amenities and infrastructure. It proposes a coherent but non-uniform urban design along the entire stretch, giving priority to non-motorised mobility through a radical change in the visual texture of the place. Recognizing the gap in the facilitation of the tourism sector, it provides creative and viable solutions at various levels. Lighting, landscape, seating, signage, security check-posts, toilet blocks and facilities for drinking water are some of them; community centres, parks and other such interaction spaces for the slum areas are others. Urban interventions at specific nodes such as the Kutta park, a pavilion or two, pause spots, and viewing points make up the value additions to this area. The active ‘streets as connectors’ align visitors to the ethos of the ordinary people as heirs to the cultural legacy along wihthe Taj. Like all roads, they lead to it; but more importantly through this, begin urban networking and eventually they weave the fabric of the entire city of Agra. The homogeneity of materials makes the street and its furniture provide a cognitive setting to the wondrous monument whose second name is harmony.

The Master Plan of Saifai shows that there are lots of upcoming projects in Saifai like residential, institutes, hence there is a demand and need of planned infrastructure system. The city›s infrastructure services like sewerage, water supply, roads etc were not designed in a planned manner. So as to cater these new and old projects the city needs to develop into a planned infrastructure zone. DESIGN Redesign of all roads incorporating the following points• design of cycle track. • design of footpath with extra space for street furniture›s and planters. • design of solar street lights. • sections including the design of intersections. • widening of road wherever required. • integrating the existing canal with the proposed road section and providing cycle track on it. landscape and horticulture for medians, footpaths and cycle tracks. recommendations for design of signage›s and street furniture›s to enhance the functionality and aesthetics of roads.

greater noida eco parks


The project pursues the Uttar Pradesh State Government’s intent of developing different parcels of forest land within the Greater NOIDA area, amounting to nearly 2400 acres, as Eco Parks. Eco Parks offer a great opportunity of rejuvenation, diversification and maintenance of a healthy eco system; and particularly when situated within an urban context, as in the case of Greater NOIDA, this ecosystem includes the people and their city. So, while the Biodiversity of the forests can be enriched, offering it as a public space not only addresses the ever-pressing demand for sustainable recreational opportunities, but also creates the possibility of protecting the forests by placing them in the public eye. Consequently, as the city protects and nurtures the forest, the forest reciprocates by cleaning up the air and water for the city and educating its people. The three sites identified for the development of the Eco parks are as follows: 1. Forest Block Gulistanpur West approximate area: 700 acres henceforth referred to as Surajpur 2. Forest Block Gulistanpur East approximate area: 339 acres henceforth referred to as Gulistpur 3. Forest Block comprising Murshidpur, Luksar and Atai Muradpur approximate area: 1300 acres henceforth referred to as Murshidpur Surajpur and Gulistanpur, located in the north of Greater NOIDA, lie close to each other. Although separated by the Uttar Pradesh State Industrial Development Corporation (UPSIDC) site, the two forests are connected by the Lohiya Nala flowing through them and the UPSIDC site The third site of Murshidpur forms the southern tip of Greater NOIDA.

sanskriti school


The Sanskriti School, Lucknow is envisioned to be one of the most prestigious institutions of the country. It will house classes from Nursery o XIIth std, and provide state of the art infrastructure for sports, extracurricular activities and over all development of children. The school is to be situated on a 10 Acre site in the newly master planned CG city at Lucknow. The site is strategically located adjoining the site for the CSI tower housing for senior IAS officials and in close proximity to the Advance Training Institute, which will house facilities to be used by the officials as well. The site occupies a prime location as an L-shaped corner plot adjoining the 55m wide green connector which runs through the heart of the CG city. The green connector conceptually and experientially connects the natural green - Forest in the north to the man made green - Park in the south. It also creates a green buffer between the 45m wide road and the abutting plots. The site is serviced from the 18m wide internal road. The concept of the site plan is to situate the school building towards the north east adjoining the green connector such that the large open areas with playgrounds can be created towards the south west forming a buffer space between the buildings of the CSI tower and the School.

agra cafe


With the completion of the Yamuna Expressway and envisioning of the Agra Inner Ring Road, the high-speed road network used by travellers-millions of them each year, is served by pause/ reprieve spaces such as the Agra Pavilion situated on the Mall road. Additionally it is a place where city residents can linger over cuisine- a component of the local and regional culture. The pavilion therefore emerges simply and clearly from a functional point of view. The facility is a symmetrically laid out food complex comprising of cafes, restaurants and kiosks, all wrapped around a courtyard. Terraces and Verandahs connect this central courtyard to the belt of green buffer between the building and the road running parallel to the site. The informal cafes are sandwiched between two masses at the ends which house the fine dining blocks. As a gesture of continuity of the streetscape of Taj Ganj, the concept of the sand stone Jaali- the lamp post with an abstraction of the profile of the minaret and dome of the Taj was inserted but appropriately adopted to the context of the cafe- as a set of towers marking the position of the place in the urbanscape of the historic city.
