Part of an urban design project, the aim of was to study the cityscape, landuse and growth pattern and propose a township according to the future needs of the city of Cochin. Services, Traffic circulation and scale of the project were some of the factors to be kept in mind. A live project for DLF, the site (26 acres) was 16m below the road level and the entry into the site was through a narrow neck. Green architecture was one of the main features of our proposal and we aimed at providing green spaces both inside and outside the built environment.
