description

The intent of the design is to create a socially inclusive, vibrant and cohesive environment fused with an existing environment that is becoming highly mono-use and very programmatic in its nature. The project looked at designing a transit-supportive framework with proposed metro station by integrating high density mixed land use and modal interchange within walking/cycling distance of the other environment and metro station. This, in turn, would foster interaction the fabric of the city by eliminating these socially isolated zones. Providing multi-modal transit interchanges would minimize modal transfer and ensure improved connectivity in the area.
