The Wall and the City

To explore the wall as an urban device that is a complex mediator between different worlds
(public/private realm, heritage/modern contexts).
- To investigate dualities of the wall as an architectural element – interior/exterior,
container/contained, exclusion/inclusion, division/connection.
- To analyze different conditions of this element across Ahmedabad, demonstrating the
complexities of the wall, its form, limits, uses, and repercussions on the social sustainability
of the city.
