Urban areas are in continuous flux
of development. Thus, to keep up
with the urban pace, Cities need to
continuously transform. Renewal
and infill is a potential way to
extract city resources such as vacant
and underutilized land parcels in the
city. The approach of urban
transformation is a challenge and a solution to growing urban sprawl, it
is a potential way to create walkable communities, facilitate residents
with housing choice, safeguard open
spaces, foreshorten infrastructure
expenses, and revitalize old
The expected outcomes of the project is intended on identifying the untapped potential that the urban land currently offers and consider it as a way of retrofitting urban sprawl to limit the physical boundaries of the haphazard city growth with substandard urban services. And then carefully considering development as a self-cleaning mechanism to emerging concerns of housing, congestion, lack of public realm, infrastructure, and ecology.
The intended project of integrating urban campuses is developed on an implied model towards urban retrofitting, promises to contribute to the solution of the problems associated with sprawling land-use patterns and institutional lands that exist as urban voids providing a passive edge to the city. Thus, reimagining urban campuses as city anchors could coordinate economic and social developments at local, regional and city level. Providing a potential to improve the Indian urban environment and transform cities for a better tomorrow.
