Urban design Studio: Semester VII

The Urban Design studio primarily aimed to understand the role of architecture in shaping urban fabric. The syllabus called for the investigation of the role of urban space as a public realm and the need to create such spaces as an extension of private domain in a public building. It had to include multiple functions, public access to majority of the spaces, and large gathering areas which are open and extendable to the immediate urban context.

The studio provided three main urban contexts for the student groups: The MG Road precinct in Bangalore; The immediate neighbourhoods around Town Hall in Bangalore; and Butte Town in Cardiff, UK. Intensive documentation and area analysis was carried out in groups to arrive at potential strategies. Individual design projects proposed specific solutions to the chosen site.
