• • • • •

The modern Bhopal city was established by Dost Mohammed Khan. Between 1819 and 1926, it was ruled by four women, Begums, – unique in the royalty of those days - under British suzerainty, Qudsia Begum was the first woman ruler, who was succeeded by Sikandar Begum, who in turn was succeeded by, Shahjehan Begum. Sultan Jahan Begum was the last woman ruler. THE RULE OF BEGUMS GAVE THE CITY ITS WATERWORKS, RAILWAYS, A POSTAL SYSTEM AND A MUNICIPALITY CONSTITUTED IN 1907.

BUILDING USE & DENSITY- to study land use, density and height of building (group worked for the model) ACTIVITY PATTERN- the purpose of the activity pattern, group was to study different types of activities happening around the zones at different times of a day. BUILDING TYPOLOGY- to study the development of the precinct throughout the history also analyzing the typical character imparted on the street as a result of specific architectural style.


BHOPAL, CHOSEN AS THE SITE FOR URBAN DESIGN STUDIO IS AN IDEAL EXAMPLE TO STUDY INDIAN CITY FABRIC. AN AMALGAMATION OF OLD AND NEW CITY CORES.

BUILDING USE AND DENSITY MAPPING: THE PROPORTIONS OF VARIED BUILDING USES WERE MAPPED ON THE PRECINCT.

THE EXISTING BUILDING USE COMPARED WITH THE DEVELOPMENT PLAN OF THE CITY. WHICH WILL HELP GUIDE THE NATURE OF INTERVENTION EVENTUALLY. BUILT DENSITIES BASED ON OPEN VS BUILT RATIOS, DISTRICT MAPPING, IDENTIFYING THE EXISTING TEXTURE OF THE FABRIC AND THE URBAN MORPHOLOGY AT PRECINCT LEVEL. HEIGHT MAPPING AND LISTING OF RELATED DCRs TO DETERMINE THE REASONS FOR THE SAME AS WELL AS SERVE AS GUIDELINES FOR INDIVIDUAL INTERVENTIONS. ANALYSIS OF BUILDING USE AND DENSITIES WITH IPEN SPACES ND ROAD NETWORKS. THE NATURE AND QUALITY OF OPEN SPACES RESULTING FROM VARIOUS FABRICS EXISTING AT THE SITE , AND THE ENCLOSURE FELT ON DIFFERENT STREETS DUE TO BUILT DENSITIES,


The Memory That Wanders Within The conscience of the traveler’s reign, Calls for a face of the unknown, Beyond skin, blood and bones. Uncanny resemblance to his own pretenses That are born to bewilder his path and senses. The face of the stranger reminds of treason, Deceit and loyalty when exposed together When the mystery of the kingdom breaks the boundaries of reason Unravels itself as he looks beneath the feathers. The wings that won’ t let her fly Seasons when she’s boldly shy. Her face is a riddle. Her existence is a lie. - Ruchita K
