Race Course Road, Bangalore
Program - Public Space
Built-up Area - 23000sft
‘URBAN KATTE/ PLATFORM’
The public space was the result of a recent conversion drive by the BBMP towards existing asphalt roadways into concrete surfaces, in the Central Business District of Bangalore. We were asked to partake in the process of traffic and pedestrian organization, and, to bring a transformation to the resulting dead space at this very prominent junction. We went through the process of understanding the context through pedestrian and vehicular analysis, land use and typology analysis, stakeholder demographic analysis, and, landscape and topographical analysis, and found a potential as a reaction to these existing systems and context. We devised an Urban Plinth that transforms itself to allow for public activity and public exhibition, while catering to activity zones for public convening and congregation. The public space has recently be cited for its success in our local news papers.
