AIM OF THE PROJECT


To provide accommodation for AsianGames1982 for
the athletes and officials
designedbyAr.RAJREWAL.
And named as Asian Games village, Delhi.

CONCEPT

concept is based upon a sequence of open spaces linked by narrow,


ded pedestrian streets and containing both recreational and commercial activities.
IDEA BEHIND THE CONCEPT
An obvious source of inspiration for such narrow streets linking
the housing units is the traditional street scale and pattern
found in many Indian cities, where narrow paths become
spaces for encounters between people, and the open squares
offer a sense of neighbourhood.

STREETS OF JAISELMER
STREETS OF ASIAN GAMES VILLAGE

Principles:
Configuring a low rise
High density development representative of the typical Indian
mohalla or community
Creating cluster formations ideal for the indian climate

CONNECTIVITY

(ROADS AND STREETS)

Peripheral roads are connected to cul-de-sac parking areas which in turn give access to
individual garages or car porches attached to houses or apartment block.
Vehicles are restricted to the main roads and parking. Making the streets totally pedestrian.

Vehicular and
pedestrian
movements is
thereby segregated
but closely
interlinked for
convenience: about
80% of the dwellings
have access from
both pedestrian
Vehicular
movement
enclosures
as well
as
the parking areas.

Green
spaces

15% of green space from the total site ar

With a mix of a street and squares ,the architect


recreates what he calls the theatre of the street, where
public interaction can spill from their immediate spaces
as neighbours into a community and works towards
making them active participants and not just viewers.

Dining complex which is now used as a


recreational and community centre.

The cubic solids and voids are characteristic of the


Indian urban fabric.

Pathway

CLUSTERS AND GATEWAYS


The units have been designed so that it can form a cluster with
either four or six units to create a variety of inner spaces.
