thesis studio honouring the past, creating the future adapting reuse of belapur fort as an interpretation centre 10th semester location - CBD Belapur, Navi Mumbai, India. site area - 5.3 acre fort area - 4355 sq.m. faculty - Ar. Shraddha Manjrekar history of the fort - the only historical area in navi mumbai. construction had begun in 1560 by siddis of janjira. In 1733, chimaji appa conquered it and was for 83 years under maratha empire. later british captured the fort and is abandoned there after. the world has an extraordinary vast and rich history which has left back a huge amount of built heritage; thay has contributed in evolving the culture and beliefs if the place they belong to. It is this connection which gives people a sense of community, they are central to how we see ourselves as an individual, as a community, as a nation. this sense of connection makes it necessary for us to preserve and protect our heritage for our future generations. adaptive reuse, the process of repurposing buildings- old buildings that have outlived their original purposes- for different uses or functions while at the same time retaining their historic features, is seen as one of the most popular and effective ways of conserving the heritage while still being in use functionally. environmental benefits combined with energy savings and the social advantage of repurposing a place with valued heritage make adaptive reuse an essential component of sustainable development. water bodies

project proposal: interpretation centre the forts of Maharashtra are of vital importance to the state’s history and hence are a major tourist attraction. mumbai already being one of the highest tourist attracted city, has its major share to forts and historically important destinations, will help develop tourism for Navi Mumbai as well. there are many museums on the history of our state and many artefacts collected related to it. but there is no place entirely dedicated to Shivaji Maharaj and his life alone. this can be one of a kind centre which is entirely dedicated to one man and his life. creating this centre as an experience of the king’s life, not housing artefacts or paintings but will purely be an experience through spaces and through technology. this interpretatoin centre, provides an experiential journey of his life. this journey consists of a number of spaces connected to each other which takes you through various phases of his life.

urban design studio Pune, metro and the city transit oriented development 8th semester Location - Pune, India. Site Area - 2 sq.km. Faculty - Ar. Rohit Potdar, Ar. Manali Deshmukh, Ar. Girija Indulkar group work of 8 students my role - on-site documentation, street -traffic analysis, environment mapping, masterplan and riverfront proposal.

aim the aim of the fourth year Urban Design studio was to understand and analyze the impact of the proposed METRO network and come up with cohesive design strategies that will not only address the issues plauging the city of Pune but also improve the quality of life that it has to offer so that it can complete globally. objectives understanding Pune city in terms of his historic background, economic growth pattern, geography and political inluences governing the city. execute a pilot study of the entire Metro proposal to include all the 3 lines in terms of connectivity, marking the important nodes along the routes and junctions. a detail survey of 500 M radius of the precinct of the Metro stations at 4 sites was conducted. based on the TOD principles recommending management and designing policies considering the impact on the surrounding urban fabric and integrate land use patterns to improve the economic and social environment of the city. corridor A: • total length = 16.589km, UG = 5.019 km (TBM = 4.114 km), Elv = 11.570 km • total Station = 15 nos, UG = 6, Elv =9 corridor B: • total length = 14.665 km, UG = 0 km, elv = 11.570 km • total Station = 16 nos, UG = 0, Elv =15 study area: • important station as it forms the junction between both the metro lines. • significance- Residential (the old kasba peth) Civic (Court) and Educational (historic british architectural COEP campus) all developed around the main river of Pune • the rapid and extensive industrialization needed workers and thousands of migrants from impoverished rural areas moved to Pune.

environment mapping: weeds and aquatic plants are present on the banks of the river. Aquatic habitats like partly submerged, marshy places, plants along the drains and effluents, plants from dry places, plants growing in rock, and bank vegetation were surveyed. the count of plants at present is 156 species which is a significant reduction number compared to 400 species. pollution: the air pollution in this area is mostly due to vehicles. it was observed that water pollution happens due to different pollutants like solid waste, chemical waste, organic & inorganic waste. as per the City Sanitation Report, water pollution is the main source of rise in diseases in this area. strengths: centrally located zone, connects all major parts of the city. floating population is more than the residents, thus the use of metro will be more. important civic buildings which create more job opportunities. a rich culture and relationship is built between heritage structures.

environment mapping

weaknesses: People residing in the area have a negative approach towards metro. heritage structures have their own set of rules for development. the drainage pattern, services are difficult to identify and change. no proper space for celebrations so the crowd spreads on roads.

圀攀攀欀搀愀礀

opportuinties: small plots can be combined so as to make use of a greater FSI. it also decreases the carbon footprint. propose slum rehabilitation. propose river front development. junabazar is a strong commercial hub. development of subways, pedestrian walkways, cycle tracks.

圀攀攀欀攀渀搀

threats: illegal construction. with the development coming up, small scale industries may get affected. if supporting transport systems like bus, cycles are not well developed, people might turn to private transport options like taxis and cars which will increase the traffic count.

vision

masterplan

connecting the city back to its river the metro station being in the centre of the residential area, civic area and the river, is a very important and potential opportunity to connect these otherwise separated zones. the sites will blend all these spaces marrying environmental and ecological sustainability, lifestyle and economic development.

TOD principles applied: 1.connecting neighbourhoodsuable areas such as parks, streets. 2.high density - number of people closer to the hub. 3.walkable and cycling areas 4.mixed use- encourages short trips 5.creating vibrant spaces. heritage building and sites: promote the recognition, description, and where appropriate the retention, refurbishment, adaptive re-use, and conservation of the historically important buildings. pedestrian movement: retain and enhance a safe, convenient, interesting and stimulating pedestrian environment through careful traffic, adding tertiary roads and onsite parking management techniques. proposals: 1. metro station with a commercial and recreational hub. 2. riverfront development. 3. open market for Junabazar. 4. high density housing development in places of slums. 6. development of road sections. Proposal of pedestiran pathways and internal roads and reducing traffic congestion. 7. cultural centre. 8. home Stay for Tourists. 9. educational Institute for Traditional construction. 9. adobe workshop.

controlled development zone: being in the centre of a city, a revenue generating zone comprising of cafes,restaurants, gardens, parks could be given. These could form a maximum width of 10m. A space for functions which can celebrate the river and its ecosystem such as an ecological museum, botanical garden, fisheries, organic farmland, museum. low footfall zone: it is suggested that a minimum of 5 meter wide linear stretch will help create a transition space between the controlled development and no development zones. green zone: we urge, minimum 30m to 50m of space along the floodplains of the river to be under a complete green cover and inaccessible to human to ensure the best health of the river in the prevailing situation.

settlement study 5th semester location - Nashik, Maharashtra, India. site area - 1.0 sqkm faculty - Ar. Minu Vaidya, Ar. Snehal Gada

Nashik is an important city of Maharashtra. It is the 3rd largest city of Maharashtra with a population of 1.5 million. It is named Nashik because it is surrounded by 9 hills (nau shikhara). Geographical proximity to Mumbai (Economic capital of India) has influenced its growth in post independence years. Developments of past two decades have completely transformed this traditional pilgrimage center into a vibrant modern metropolis and Nashik is poised to become a metropolis with global links. The city is situated on the banks of river Godavari making it one of the holiest places for Hindus. Organically developing along banks of the river, Nashik has acquired importance because of the sacrWed river Godavari and as one of the important places in Ramayana. The river rising in Nashik, about 50 miles from shore of Arabian sea at an elevation of 3500 feet, after flowing for about 910 miles in general south-easterly direction, through Maharashtra an Andhra Pradesh, Godavari falls into the bay of Bengal above Rajahmundry. Kumbhmela is a glorious gathering of sadhus as well as pilgrims at a place on some spcific days. Kumbhmela at other places are Ujjain, Allahabad and Haridwar. It is celebrated every 12 years in Nashik. Gods were on the earth for 12 days with the Amrut which is equal to 12 human years. Amrut, after the samudra manthan, that came out of the ocean had to be saved from the danavas, thus gods hide it at different places. It is said that one drop of Amrut fell in Nashik and river Godavari emerged from it and thus on the specified day, by taking bath on the Ghats, one attains “Moksha�. Over 100 millions of pilgrims, travelers, sadhus, saints gather together for Shahi Snan in Godavari river. During Maha Kumbhamela, sadhus coming for Shahi bath, have Akhadas LAYOUT

Vendors sitting outside the shops(early morning/ night) add a security factor to the jewelry shops.

Windows in the attic of the older structures(timber) at a lower height than usual. Attics are used generally for storage purposes because of the heat due to metal sheet roofing, for affordable maintenance.

Shops encroach up to the road after opening, pulling out displays of their merchandise. This encroachment makes the traffic movement a little slow. Pedestrian movement is easier and encouraged.

Inner courts formed when you enter the gallies(lanes).

Food stalls open up in the evening, changing not only the look of the street but also the fragrances. Two-wheelers are often parked on the road sides.

The settlement grew around the temples with different typologies being developed due to the needs of the people. The ghats of the river became public recreational areas and a place of trading for vegetables and basic needs. The ghats have changed their form according to the convenience of the people, wider ghats to accommodate more people during festivals, merchants to sell goods. Bridges were built on the river as a connection from one ghat to the other increasing developmemt of the settlement. The Ghats and the Ramkund are developed to meet the requirements of people who come to worship – like hospitals, luggage storage, buildings, etc.
