This document is a condensation of the UNDERSTANDING THE CITY studio of Semester 1, Faculty of Planning of CEPT University. The objective of the studio is to make the students develop a thorough understanding of an urban precinct through a detailed study on the city of Ahmedabad and the analysis of its fundamental parameters. As a part of the studio, each student was given a 1 square kilometer area in Ahmedabad. A total of 12 exercises were conducted over a span of 16 weeks that covered all the basic aspects regarding city planning. This document contains a selective comprehension of all the exercises covered during these days with inferences and analysis, done on the precinct allotted to me, Hansol of North Ahmedabad. The precinct area, Hansol is the one precinct whose unique morphology. The study highlights how this unique character in morphology was evolved, what impact did it have on the infrastructural development in the precinct, and how does it influence the liveability in Hansol. All the information produced is authentic and is based on on-site studies and primary surveys conducted during the prescribed time period. The Studio ends with a synthesis involving a similar analysis from various other precincts from different parts of Ahmedabad.
