“Cultures and climates differ all over the world, but people are the same. They’ll gather in public if you give them a good place to do it.” – Jan Gehl
An inspired landscape master plan looked at amenity and public spaces of varied scales spaces within an easy walk from every household. We believe in Ghel’s vision, that these spaces would fill in as ‘community matures into a neighborhood’
By reinvigorating parklands, integrating landscapes, and incorporating landscape elements such as water features, public artworks, plazas, and event spaces; the landscape master plan of GIFT, Ahmedabad has created opportunities for an ideal neighborhood. For a dynamic neighborhood with major public venues and flexible housing patterns, a lakefront is designed as a high-capacity open-air event space. With improved lighting, a connected precinct with an enhanced network of lanes and streets and more diverse public experiences is developed into an engaging new urban space.
