This portfolio is the collection of work done in the ‘Elements of Urban Design’ course. The first section is a compilation of representation and analysis of different elements of urban design like - Buildings, Streets, Open Space and Urban Blocks. The elements of the urban fabric were studied and the proposal was to unite the public spaces in the vicinity of Vastrapur Lake and remove the factors which are ruining the public experience. The idea of ‘Urban Detox’ was introduced as a type of intervention to deal with existing urban infrastructure and the main challenges that the existing space is facing like unorganized parking, unmanaged informal activities, unwelcoming edge conditions of the lake and park to name a few.
