Proposal for iconic city along the Ganga riverside_Part_1

 The Trans Ganga Masterplan designed and proposed by Studio Symbiosis is spread over 1156 acres, and is being developed as a mixed use development.
 Envisioned as an iconic city on the banks of the River Ganga, the master plan is a self sufficient sustainable city.
 The existing patterns of the River Ganga were studied, and through digital simulation, density patterns emulating the Ganga patterns were translated into the central green (area) of the master plan.
 The auto expo is designed as an iconic building creating a prominent visual marker. It is located at a very important interface of the central green and the promenade.
 It’s an amalgamation zone of various activities of the master plan cascading into each other thereby creating a functionally rich urban plaza.
 At the heart of the master plan is an auto expo. Auto Mart and Auto Expo are the two distinct functions nested in the building.
 Sustainable city design has been imbibed in the planning at two levels.
 Firstly at the design level elements required to make a city sustainable have been grafted in the master plan. Secondary at the implementation stage green roof, earth cooling, solar panels, ground water recharge, waste management have been proposed
 Land use distribution consists of Commercial, industrial, Mixed use, residential and public amenities. In view of the Indian conditions, special amenities overlapped with certain design parameters have been provided in the master plan to avoid encroachment. The functional diversity has been unified by a seamless skyline. This undulating skyline merges the various functional requirements of the master plan into a visually coherent system.
Iconic towers have been designed along the Ganga riverfront . These commercial/mixed used towers soaring up to a height of 100-140 meters, impart a sense of arrival to the master plan. The façade pattern for the towers will form a part of the detailed urban design guidelines. This façade pattern has been designed by solar analysis using computational software’s, thereby generating a façade system that acts as a sustainable design feature in the master plan by reducing the heat loads.
