Pause and Reflect

In Khadia, Old Ahmedabad, urban overcrowding and a lack of pedestrian-friendly spaces present significant challenges to livability. The ambition is to provide small pockets of relief spaces for pedestrians to seek a moment of relief. The project "Pause and Reflect" aims to address these issues by strategically analyzing key nodes and street patterns to create inviting spaces for pedestrians to pause and reflect.
