“Small businesses suffered losses, men lost their loved ones. A space for businesses to bloom (scope- food-related) “
A MODULAR SYSTEM COULD BE REPEATED FOR HANGOUT PODS, CYCLING PODS, WASHROOM PODS, SMALL BUSINESS. ALSO CONTEMPLATION SPOTS COULD BE INCLUDED IN ISOLATION (GIVEN THE FACT THERE EXISTS A CREMATORIUM ALREADY)
THIS SYSTEM COULD EITHER BE PLACED ALL AROUND THE PERIPHERY ACCESSIBLE TO THE PEDESTRIANS OR BE AT INSIDE THE PARK. THE STRUCTURE LOOKS AS IF IT IS FOREVER UNDER CONSTRUCTION.
During the pandemic a gloom had set upon us. Small and big businesses suffered losses; people lost their loved ones. Physical and economical conditions forced people to abandon their daily life and migrate in a new place thus leaving behind their identity. What people have now is a hole to fill with hope.
The park which is a sudden, huge open space in a closely packed cluster could play a role in building up the hope of the people. It could be A PLACE OF HOPE which houses various activities like small food-businesses,inside the park and on the roads thus providing an economic boost to these vendors. Along with this the Park provides a space of comfort and hope for people emotionally struggling with the pandemic, who lost their loved ones,etc. The yearly celebration of Dr. Ambedkar’s Jayanti is also an event which the Ambedkarites rejoice and is a form of hope for them. The PLACE OF HOPE could turn this into a better experience.
The Park will have pods for food vendors and also for the vendors who set up stalls during Ambedkar Jayanti. The top storeys are a mixture of hangout and contemplation pods for people to experience hope, to socialize. The ancillary functions include Toilets, Sanitation zones.
The structure will be a grid structure which spreads inside the ground with a play of light and colors to bring out the emotion of hope.
