Re-imagining alternative urban spaces
Re-imagining alternative urban spaces
Architects have a new social role to play to improve neglected urban spaces. Through creative ideas, innovative architecture can transform abandoned public spaces and re-imagine new ‘alternative spaces’ to create a vibrant community spirit. We find several small urban spaces, which are neglected, polluted, garbage dumps, pathways etc.
We often turn a blind eye to these dis-used public spaces around us.
In reality these spaces have tremendous potential to inspire community interaction, after they are transformed.
The students of
MES School of architecture identified
an abandoned public space that has the potential to be a vibrant urban social space.
The following newspaper reports showcase the featured works done by 6th semester B.Arch. students for the given project brief.
