CITIES

In the coming decades, a democratic India will witness the rise of over 400 cities as dense urban conglomerates, which will catapult it into becoming
one of the leading economies of the world. These new cities must hence
be planned responsibly, based on
a set of objectives that would equitably foster a vibrant cultural fabric out of the diversity, ensure a flourishing
economy by engaging its young workforce and promoting a sensitive ecological balance through prudent use of its resources while ensuring that the benefits of its development percolate
to all sections of society.

INDUSTRIAL TOWNSHIPS

In a knowledge driven world,
Industrial Townships offer great opportunities not only for enhanced employment but also for redefinition
of social, environmental and economically equitable work-play- life solutions through demonstratively inclusive business models. Such planning attempts must be socially and ecologically engineered around the needs of the industry and economy, while strengthening the democratic rights of equity and economic well
being of those, whose lives are
impacted by such industrial development.

BUILT ENVIRONMENT

Buildings today are increasingly
getting noticed for their visual appeal though they maybe the biggest guzzlers of energy worldwide. They must be engineered scientifically to provide verifiable solutions for lower energy
and natural resources consumption rather than be marketed on the
promise of performance and looks. Buildings must evolve from their relation to the surrounding nature
and integrate energy conservation strategies. And above all, they must
be built to suit the needs of actual occupants rather than developers.

OPEN SPACES

Open spaces with a focus on creating equity in access, opportunity, facilities and amenities can be the cornerstones for providing a democratic, safe and vibrant environment. By drawing people outdoors they create greater social interactions, dispel cultural and economic divide amongst the residents while keeping them healthy. Well-planned open spaces facilitate socially vibrant and economically efficient communities while creating a new model that delivers more fulfillment
per capita from less consumption
per head.

WORK SPACES

There is an urgent need to find industry, people and their culture specific solutions for improving efficiency, comfort and engagement
of all the end users at workplaces in today's demanding business world. While businesses focus on being profitable and competitive, it must treat tenants as partners to evolve productivity-enhancing and attrition-reducing workplace design solution, thereby increasing productively while bringing economies of scale emanating from workplace solutions.

LIVING SPACES

Today homes are bought more
for their imagery of globalized lifestyle, investment value or the glitzy technological gadgetry rather than impact on human health, social wellbeing or ecological sustainability. Living spaces ideally should serve
the basic human need of shelter
and comfort while nourishing the
deep-rooted values of the society
and sense of security by fostering human relationships to enhance
the quality of human life.
