Sustainability is a key component of all future developments. Urban design focuses on development which are sustainable and environment friendly whether by incorporating new technologies or by going back to traditional concepts.

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.

Public events to be hosted

City is not always about infrastructure

It needs color glamour excitement etc.

So lets celebrate!!!

Whether it be Biennale Alwaye edition or Movie festivals or exhibitions during Shivaratri..

A new urban vision to Aluva city- An Urban Design Perspective City+Futures Design Collaborative

Festivals exhibitions etc. will help to bring attention to the city both to administrators and the people. Thus it will brand the city and more focus and investment will come in from different sources for the development of the city. So we need to take initiative to conduct such annual events..

29

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.
