Entry 791675 - Vikram Kohli, Sonal Tiwari and Richa Raje: Urban Design Challenge 2018

From the Jury’s Statement: The jury would like to rec­og­nize the Entry 791675, for the bold man­ner in which it at­tempts to re­solve the is­sues of traf­fic and cars, by cre­at­ing a dom­i­nantly pedes­trian en­vi­ron­ment and fur­ther­more gives pri­macy to peo­ple on vi­brant streets. The pro­ject achieves this by a strate­gic lo­ca­tion of car park­ing in ways in which it will, over time im­pact how peo­ple move in a city. This pro­ject also in­tro­duces a mul­ti­tude of lin­ear and flex­i­ble blocks, which as a ty­pol­ogy are ag­ile and can be used in a range of man­ners that will be suit­able to dif­fer­ent con­di­tions pre­sented on the site. It fur­ther gets recog­ni­tion in the man­ner in which it re-imag­ines the grid, and brings in the idea of na­ture in a strong and con­vinc­ing man­ner. The en­try also shows early con­cerns of in­tro­duc­ing green in­fra­struc­ture and demon­strates ways in which tree preser­va­tion will be pos­si­ble. The con­tri­bu­tion of a large wet­land park is a pos­i­tive ad­di­tion to the grain of the city.
