A STUDY REPORT
Sustainable architecture is a major issue in light of the environmental degradation that the world faces today. Shelter is a basic human need. Buildings and habitats are designed and constructed to fulfill this. Energy is another major resource that is being consumed indiscriminately to meet the power demand for air-conditioning, lighting and equipment. Citing an example of the growing urban metropolis of delhi in india - it lost its green buffer to give way to the growth of satellite towns of noida and gurgaon, resulting in sudden weather changes due to unobstructed hot/cold winds from neighboring states. On the other hand, had these impacts been studied earlier, preventive interventions could have been possible.

A STUDY REPORT Environmental design is the process of addressing Natural environment parameters when devising plans, programs, policies, buildings, or products. Classical prudent design may have always considered environmental factors; however, the environmental movement beginning in the 1960s has made the concept more explicit.

MALL & MULTIPLEX, JODHPUR
While designing a Mall cum Multiplex, the first thing came in my mind was segregation of spaces…Mall & Multiplex both…
Both were given different spaces with different approaches…My basic concept lies in this simple ideology… T.F.
The atrium provide more natural light through out to inner shops in daylight…a fiber sheet is placed over it to curtail off storm and rain!
CENTRE FOR CRAFTS, JAIPUR
India is predominantly rural and to help around 300 million people cross the poverty line is a major challenge before the government and non-government organizations. Several policy measures were initiated, in this regard, to create opportunities for sustainable employment and incomes.
Due to the changes in trends and desires, many art forms and handicrafts techniques are losing their functional use, altogether being replaced fast by plastic and metal goods. Indian handicraft cloth, textile and cottage industries are being depressed by modern western brands in malls. Hence, there is a need of a place like Craft Centre where Indian rural goods and products can get a place and one can enjoy the richness of Indian art & craft, cuisine and culture & tradition.
It is in this context, the creation of permanent infrastructure in the form of marketing centers – “CRAFT CENTRES” for display and sale of products produced by rural micro entrepreneurs becomes imperative. Thus, these types of projects will increase the economic status of the country. PROJECT BRIEF

STUDY OF COMMERCIAL AREAS OF JAIPUR
The study aims at appraising the plan of existing commercial areas in Jaipur. The appraisal is based on the parameters like the location, site features, development status, the regulations and bye-laws, study of physical infrastructure, activity pattern, distribution of services and amenities, linkages of the industrial area. The project includes two Case studies – Indira Palace Commercial Scheme & Old City Market, Jaipur
Objectives of the Study 1. To study the urban growth pattern of commercial area in general. 2. The objective is achieved with the study of location and linkages, the development scenario in sector-9, the physical infrastructure of the area, comparing the above aspects with the case study. 3. To have the inputs for the growth of commercial area as governed by JDA norms. The objective is achieved with the study of JDA norms for the commercial areas. 4. To suggest policy guidelines for the shortcomings.
INDIRA PALACE COMMERCIAL SCHEME, MALAVIYA NAGAR Gaurav Tower Anand Fort Crystal Court Jaipur Stock Exchange Glorious Tower The area harbors the following commercial activities: Offices of MNCs‟. Showrooms Departmental Stores Food Zones Entertainment & Games ATMs Small shops
ANALYSIS & INFERENCES Parking: The basement area of Gaurav tower and Anand fort which are supposed to be used as parking area are being used as commercial space. This leads to shortage of ground parking. Crystal Court provides Multi-Level parking which has been made free of cost for visitor up to 2 hours but still it is not in use and vehicles are parked on road. Taxi-drivers creates constriction on roads and hence results in road blockage. Informal Sector: Informal sector on road junctions lead to traffic congestion. Unauthorized kiosks and tea stalls on pedestrian pathways creates problems with flow of pedestrian movement. A large number of employees working in the vicinity use these shops daily. Services & Infrastructure: Service corridor is unmaintained and unsafe. Fire Safety measures are not up-to-date. Garbage is thrown on the road. Garbage Collector vehicle do not come periodically. Aesthetics & Functioning: In spite of Main road corner location of Anand fort, it is still not accepted by public because of its compact planning and lack of open spaces. Also the building has been under violation for a long time; so its commercial use is prohibited. Crystal Court being so aesthetically sound building, the visitor does not prefer it. Its main entrance is rarely used because of its orientation. It opens to rear side of scheme which is never a public junction. Gaurav tower is among the best shopping plazas of Jaipur. It is inviting in nature because of its open central plaza and hence is the first choice of visitors.
STUDY OF BHARATPUR CITY
Aim of the study is to analyze the factors that resulted in the difference between the existing urban differences between the existing urban developments of Bharatpur town from the 1984-2001Development plan proposals. Objectives of the study To study the master plan proposal for the year 1984-2001. To study on ground situation, by conducting surveys. To compare the proposed and the existing and mark out deviations for all the land uses namely; residential, commercial, industrial, recreational, social infrastructure, physical infrastructure and circulation in pattern and magnitude.

STATUS OF INFRASTRUCTURE PROVISIONS IN J.D.A. REGION, JAIPUR
Aim: To identify the status of infrastructure facilities those are available within JDA region. Objectives: Analysis of existing infrastructure in the study area through secondary data. Comparison of existing infrastructure with the projected population demand. Methodology: The aim of the study has been achieved by first identifying the status of existing infrastructure facilities within JDA region. The data with respect to these parameters was than collected from secondary sources (district census handbook of 1981, 1991 and 2001). Base maps of data collected for these parameters were then prepared. Analysis of the status of infrastructure facilities within JDA region was then carried out. Scope & Limitations The scope of the study is limited to the study of the villages in the JDA region only due to the limitations of manpower and time. Furthermore, four infrastructure facilities have been identified for the study: Education includes Primary Schools, Middle Schools, Secondary Schools, Senior Secondary Schools, Colleges & other discipline institutes. Health related facilities such as Hospitals, Dispensary, Maternity Child Welfare, Physical Health Centre, and Nursing home. Water Supply system has been studied in categorization of Centralized & De-Centralized Water Supply System. Centralized water supply will indicate frequency of water supply in hours and De-Centralized water supply system indicates use of Wells, Hand pumps, Tank Water or Tube Wells. Road Network will provide information related to the surface quality of the roads i.e. Bituminous, WBM & Earthen Roads.
ENVIRONMENTAL PLANNING OF JAIPUR CITY
Under the „Environmental Planning for Jaipur city‟, my area of interest was Urban Forestry
Environmental issues related to forest cover has been identified on the basis of two aspects: EXPOLITATION
Mining Encroachment Deforestation Illegal grazing in monsoons Urban development & growth sprawl Un-identical notified boundaries
Afforestation Land reclamation Awareness Energy use reduction Urban growth management Sustainable development
EXISTING & PROPOSED URBAN FOREST REGION IN JAIPUR CITY
Identify large un-used chunk in the city and grade them as urban forestry. Removal of unauthorized settlements under those marked areas and preserve those against any further unauthorized settlements or developments. Not all urban forest area will be open for public visits. Areas like campuses; cantonment & land area adjacent to Amanisha Nala will have restricted public entry. Link the Amanisha Nala with green corridors or urban forestry pockets. According to the planning proposal, additional area is required to be added under urban forestry. Such pockets will act as buffer zone and will help in preventing unnecessary encroachment on degraded & un-used land chunks. Areas under urban forestry will also act as linkage between man & environment. Bicycle tracks, pedestrian pathways, water bodies, hillocks and recreational areas can be part of it. For ex: Jaldhara, in Jaipur has been developed as recreational area thus preserving natural constraints of the land i.e. ridges, contours & water bodies. Areas like MOTI DUNGRI HILLOCK, AMBABARI NALA, MNIT campus, GUJJAR KI THADI NALA are under proposal. These areas are predominant and require urgent attention. Roadside plantation is advisable.
ZONAL DEVELOPMENT PLAN, ZONE 10, JAIPUR
Under the Master Development Plan for Jaipur-2025, Jaipur is divided into 16 planning zones. U1 covers 13 planning zones. Zones 1 to 10 are completely covered in U1, while the zone 11, 12 & 15 are partially present.
Aim: To prepare zonal development plan for Zone 10 of U1 area of Jaipur City.
To study the existing socio-economic, physical and social infrastructure conditions of zone 10. To prepare the existing land use plan of zone 10. To project population, density and quantify requirements for zone 10. To preserve existing green spaces. To encourage group housing. To integrate the existing settlements. To provide policy guidelines for zone 10.

LAND USE TRANSFORMATION: PROBLEMS & PROSPECTS Aim: The aim is to study problems and prospects of land use transformation : A case of Walled City, Jodhpur. Objectives : To study the changes in land uses in the walled city over a specified time period. To identify the density pattern and the pockets of transformation in the walled city. To assess the impact of land use transformation over walled city area. To provide suitable guidelines for future development of walled city.
Scope of the study A specific area of walled city will be studied to support the aim of the study, through primary survey. The findings & conclusions at micro level will give some guidelines for the future development of these areas and also for other areas which are under the process of similar type of change. Detailed study of all land uses are not in the scope of the study. Limitations Study has been conducted with the available data (tables, plans etc). Study of change in land uses for a specific time period will be as per secondary data source. Detailed investigation of individual plots are not included in the study.
Railway Station Central Bus Stand Area = 417 ha
Originated as fortified town with fort on slightly elevated ground. The fort, the palace and the road joining them are the main elements of the city space. Narrow lanes, magnificent palaces, havelies of the rich and the famous temples are all here. The character of havelies and mansions is unique in itself. The narrow streets with tall 2-3 storeyed havelies and mansions casting shadows in the street make the streets and ground temperature low and make the streets cool. The havelies are richly carved in locally available stone and showcases the owner‟s status.
Land Use: Walled City, 1972 & 1991
Commercial Industrial Public & Semi-Public Recreational Circulation
Other Vacant Land Hilly & Rocky Water Bodies
Walled city is majorly characterized as residential area under proposed Draft Master Plan 2023, Jodhpur. The commercial activities are located along major streets in and around walled city. It is also spread in inner secondary streets & narrow lanes. Wholesale markets are located inside the walled city. Retail shops are majorly located on primary streets. Area around Fort, as marked in the plan earlier, majorly constitute residential area, hotels, guest houses, temples & other architectural landmarks including Jaswant Thada.
Selection of study area was based on pre-research of existing areas of walled city which have seen transformation with due course of time.
After selection of study area, primary survey was led to conduct study further . 1 – Jalori Gate 2 – Sojati Gate 3 – Merti gate 4 – Nagauri Gate 5 – Chand Pol Gate 6 – Siwanchi Gate

Study Area Factors for selecting Stretch A: •
A stretch of 1.8 km length starting from Jalori gate & ending at inner city area called – Adaa bazar, this stretch has witnessed changes in land use because of it‟s prime location & approachability.
Jalori gate is preferred as main entrance to the walled city hence type of activities have emerged differently onto this stretch.
Saturation of activities has still not been achieved onto this stretch as other part of the walled city area has already achieved.

Issues Identification of issues – Walled City level
Uncontrolled growth of commercial activities. Increase in informal activities on junctions & other streets. Encroachment of shops on streets minimizes the effective width of a street. Parking problem inside main areas. Streets are encroached with vehicles also. Loading & Un-Loading vehicles occupy streets most of the time. Load on infrastructure provisions especially electricity as many shops do not have separate commercial electrical connections. More than one floor of the residences is used for commercial activities. Recreational areas are very less. The few existing parks are also on the verge of deterioration. The existing water bodies are decaying with increase in encroachment over these areas. Absence of enforcement of building bye-laws .
Identification of issues – Study Area level Increase in commercial activities in and around residential areas. Rise of industrial units – Water polluting industries of tie & dye. Change in built form due to change in land uses & activity pattern. Public squares are decomposing into parking space. Commercial markets are developing around secondary streets. No proper parking area is delineated. Hanging wires can cause serious fire problems. As Jalori gate is the main entrance to the walled city, the traffic is high & congested in the study area.
Walled City - Recommendations
Area around fort should be prohibited for any land use change
Wholesale commercial activities should be decentralized.
Encroachment over water bodies should not be allowed
Informal activities located at main junctions, chowks should be managed & relocation should be done.
Study area - Recommendations N Water Polluting small scale industries should be relocated.
Building use on main roads should be restricted to use of commercial activity limited upto ground floor
Commercial activities on secondary streets should not be allowed.
Public squares to be free from encroachments & use for commuting
Informal markets are generating around junctions & chowks should not be allowed & existing should be removed. 37
