MANDI HOUSE REDEVELOPMENTNew Delhi

The MANDI HOUSE area is the Socio-Cultural Hub of the city, home to several cultural institutions. Connected with 2 metro-lines, the new underground Interchange metro station has made this place easily accessible from all over the city. The 7-road round about connecting to different destinations in the city make this a very strategically located site, that is frequented by nearly everyone, very often in Delhi. Earlier some sculptures and unkempt waterbodies, defunct fountains in each of these 7 greens and the pathways sandwiched between the peripheral boundary-walls and large planted greens all hidden from the view used to attract miscreants and was unsafe for pedestrians to negotiate. This unsafe, run-down state of all the 7 green pockets now have been transformed, each with a context specific design that has been created to save all existing trees and the existing sculptures. Each of these individual pocket parks though have a different scale, geometric style, but are unified with the materiality and the centrality of focusing on the central round about. So, while each of these newly designed pocket parks are different as a response to their varied contextual challenges all now are visually linked to the center of the roundabout this new centrality is not only a unifying design theme, but also ensures that all the pockets also are visible from the road ensuring a level of safety by eliminating the earlier dark spots hidden behind planting etc. This also automatically drives out all the negative criminal misuse of the public spaces, and creates safe vibrant new spaces designed as informal amphitheaters.
