Urban Design / Karol Bagh

2012 / ARCHITECTURE / GRAPHIC DESIGN

group project with
Ammani Nair, Amri Chadha and Varun Bajaj

The aim of the exercise was to redevelop Karol Bagh to capitalize on the metro connectivity and to create an active urban environment. Our intervention attempted to create a cohesive urban image for the district which interacts with the visitor/ resident on the human scale. The design assigns priority to the pedestrian and public transit user, ensuring that he has uninterrupted access across the site.

Walkable pathways, public plazas and open, green spaces combine to form a continuous pedestrian “green-line” which loops across and connects the entire site. The pedestrian boulevard connects important nodes like metro stations, bus stops etc. Pedestrians, public transit users, cyclists, and the physically disabled can all plug-in and plug-out of the green line as required.
