FROM BALKRISHNA DOSHI:
“Can we minimize motorized travel and maximize walking and cycling? Can we change the conventional land use patterns and provide for mixed land uses? Can we create opportunities at various scales where everybody can work together? Can we find an optimal transportation network?” These were some of the questions explored by the architect as he envisioned the masterplan and urban design for the housing complex.
Chandigarh and Old Jaipur were analyzed to construct a community that considered transportation, demographics, employment patterns, infrastructure and environmental use.
