Each group was allowed to choose any part of the main piazza from their point of view was important and also related problems with facades, activities, parking, landscaping etc. One group focused on the working of main chowk, i.e. the one having proposed multi-storied building forming the landmark. They wanted the multi-storied building to be there, the place lacks focus and intended landmark if were to come up as proposed would really activate the area. They proposed large landmark metal sculpture built in concrete and steel to make up for the loss of the multi-storied building. Second point of their emphasis was pedestrian connection to the Rose Garden by way of over bridge on the Jan Marg. Similar connections were proposed towards northeast over Madhya Marg, southest over Himalaya Marg and southwest over Udyog Marg. They overruled the over bridge over the piazza and instead proposed that to be the open stage overlooking the piazza, and making that area more active. They proposed Indian bazaars in the area around there. Second group proposed the reworking of main piazza with change in flooring pattern, landscaping concept on more regular and geometric concept. They proposed unification of piazzas lying northwest and southeast of B L O G A R C H I V E ▼ 2008 (3) ▼ April (3) Six groups were formed to work out design strategi...

  2. 8/15/2017 JOINT WORKSHOP: 2008 2/10 the neelam piazza by cutting down the parking area. They proposed intensive landscaping on northwest end of the unified piazza and on the southeast area a large stage for fashion ramp and exhibition etc. which could be raised and lowered mechanically. Third group insisted the main piazza to be hard piazza with no distraction like sitting areas and introduction of special areas for city’s youth on the upper floors bordering the Neelam piazza; activities such as bowling alleys, clubs dance floors, discos etc. This will allow more activities on the upper floors after dark in the area. Also the piazza connecting the neelam piazza on the southeast side to have Infinity Pool, large water body as main point of interest on that side. Fourth group proposed introduction of spherical objects on the piazza as points of reference all over the piazza as landscape features. These spheres will act as seating points, street furniture, waste collection points, lighting features, etc. They also proposed parking in the piazzas on the northeast side in the basement by having circular cut outs for natural light and also providing shade by planning trees. Fifth group gave ideas of increased piazzas on southeast and northwest of neelam piazza by doing away with the parking there. More activities such outdoor eateries and curious kiosks could be introduced. Also they were of the opinion to have more green on the side wings of the neelam piazza. Sixth group had ideas, more or less repeatedly emphasizing more landscaping, infusing the piazzas with more colorful floor scape, large water sculptures at strategic positions and e.g. one in front of Neelam. Also doing away with Neelam and instead to upgrade it with

It has ushered in new terminology in planning of built environment in the city designed by Le Corbusier, architect and planner of Chandigarh, the capitol complex where piazzas connect built forms, and other areas the lake where a large promenade plays a significant part, the piazzas in sector 17 also displays a similar concept. Le Corbusier’s attempts at comprehending scale at urban level have been achieved through piazzas. As such the role of piazzas in this context needs to be studied. The city center hence becomes a total public domain where
  8. 8/15/2017 JOINT WORKSHOP: 2008 8/10 pedestrian movement is most dominant factor in planning. In fact the two major axes in sector-17 are piazzas-centric with building blocks kept as guiding tools. In light of the basic concept of piazzas in sector-17 it becomes imperative to study its functioning in the present scenario. The city is not only serving administrative functions but also it has become hub of new activities such as Information Technology Park, changing land- use patterns in various districts and periphery areas; expanding the use of shopping malls and multiplexes. Sector-17 is also the hub of social interaction of the city’s people. Objective: To redevelop the existing sector-17 piazzas in light of the changing aspirations, needs and usages of the visitors. Intent: · To familiarize the students with problems connected in designing public domain in Indian context. · To make them aware of Indian climate and its role in built environment· To bring about public participatory action plan · To understand planning issues emerging from the cultural differences, sense of place, etc. - To enhance visual focal points and nodal areas. - To enhance aesthetic impact. Design Problem: The issues pertaining to sector-17 piazzas need to be studied as below: · To study the existing pattern in terms of urban design principles; axes, scale, orientation and city center functions. · To assess problems with respect to location aspects of the piazzas. · To invigorate piazzas in terms of activity in different periods. · To analyze pedestrian movement with respect to vehicular traffic· To study the problems of parking. · To study the climatic aspect, orientation, building materials and services · To emphasize the role of street furniture, signage, lighting and landscaping. · To assess the public amenities and services, vendor machines,
  9. 8/15/2017 JOINT WORKSHOP: 2008 9/10 Newer Posts public assistance, security structures. · To study the usage of piazzas in festival seasons. - To study feasibility of having outdoor cafes/ eateries etc. Methodology: - To sensitize the students with the problem through expert-lectures - To assist the study through library resources- To assess the problem by visiting sites - To establish connection with traditional planning by visiting Manimajra (old) - To compare the present system with the historical examples such as Fatehpur Sikri, Jaipur .To compare the piazzas with La Defense area in Paris and other examples. To evolve interaction with the design faculty in the total process. To evolve design strategies with regard to problems studied. Scope: Above design problem is to be presented in groups studying various aspects of piazzas as being discussed above. There will be six groups working in the design problem in various issues. The study will be in following stages: a) Expert lectures on various aspects of the topic b) Familiarization of site conditions by site visits c) Presentation of study of various aspects as discussed above d) To work out design strategies in studio e) Presentation of the strategies formed Note: Detailed schedule of work, resourse person and site information are attached.
