The project is about the city in spaces, an attempt is to rethink the periphery and turn it to an active verge where a series of spaces is created between the street and the plot. The institutional land sits vacant to house any future expansion of the institution but meanwhile, through edges, it accommodates the informal activities that create a pause point that supports the city.
Why along institutional land?? 1)Vacant land margins along the institutional premises allow various activities to operate along its edges, i.e social and religious activities, livelihood, vending and market. (in this case, secondary activities along the vacant land edge supports the city, street flow, and junctions - not the vacant land) 2) The edges become magnets for food stalls, cloth markets, and other forms of vending to attract the student crowd from these institutes( a secondary set of supporting activities catering to the institutions )
