• Metropolitan cities like Delhi Mumbai Kolkata etc have grown multiple times beyond their capacity and has been facing large issues like poverty, slums, traffic, lack of safety & security, loss of livability factor etc. Bodies like DUAC are formed to keep a check on this rapid urbanization.

• Cochin is fast growing into a metropolitan which will end up with a similar fate as the metropolitans.

• Aluva being a sub city of Cochin is soon going to have a big impact from this development of Cochin. We as urban designers think that this is the right point at which the city can be guided, planned and designed to accommodate this large changes.

Aluva (formerly Alwaye), is a suburb of Kochi in the Ernakulam district of Kerala, India. Located on the River Periyar, Aluva is the industrial epicentre of the state. A major transportation hub, with easy access to all major forms of transportation, Aluva acts as a corridor which links the highland districts to the rest of the state.

Physical• Traffic and congestion issues.• No efficient Public transport networks…and not Pedestrian & cycling friendly• Parking • Neglected or disconnected from northern parts of the city across the river.• Night life/safety and security.• No public spaces• It has become a transit point and is not becoming a livable city..

Non-Physical• No identity on its own as a city.• ‘River’ the greatest potential is missing from the scene• Proposed Metro and new influx of people.• City is not growing or it is not given enough thrust to grow beyond.• Forgotten historic significance and character.

ISSUES WE DEAL WITH AS A GROWING CITY

How do we go about it?Technical strategies• Develop an urban design strategy plan for

the city 2020.• After detail study & analysis come up with

possible projects within available land areas.

• Conduct a wide public participation meet where people come in to see and comment on the visions envisaged.

• Phasing of projects depending on time frame, economic conditions and land concerns.

• Give out identified projects to experts from concerned fields as individual projects but under the umbrella urban Design Master plan.

Economic feasibility• PPP model • Big players like federal bank should be

brought in…• MP MLA Fund can be utilized• Advertisements, hoardings etc…• Park fees etc.• Job generator for the people of the city• Tourist influx increases the market and

sales in the area.• Hence corporate with the merchants

association.• Increasing the livability will be

supported by CREDAI.• KURDFC

How do we go about it?
