UD4005, a unit of the Urban Transformation Studio 2023, MUD, explores urban design possibilities in TOD (Transit-Oriented Development) in developing urbanities. The recent TOD initiatives by central and state governments display in principle intention to transform urban environments. TOD is typically conceived as a high-density, high-end real estate around transit nodes. However, due to a lack of supporting regulatory framework and implementation mechanisms, the projects, in most cases are unable to exploit the benefits envisaged by the policy. Through their design projects, students explored the methods of integration of the physical design with the regulatory frameworks (TPS. LAP) in creating livable. functional. memorable, safe, and sustainable urban areas. The projects had a strong design focus on the physical setting, however issues of private ownership and social equity. land economics. planning models. project finance and implementation strategies were also addressed.
