INTEGRATEDDEVELOPMENT•Trade & Commerce have been an essential part of human activity for overcenturies. It evolved drastically over time with our growing needs andexpanding domain. The evolution of market place’s have resulted in a newtypology of integrated Business setup’s emerging all over the world which arebetter known as Business precincts.•This Thesis is intended to study and design an Integrated Business Precinctthat would serve as a commercial and Recreational hub to the city ofMangalore. The Project would include offices that house Financial, IT/ITESCorporations and various other commercial/retail business establishments. Itwill also include various spaces’ that enhance the civic pride of the city.•In contrast to the general perception of a business parks being a highlyexclusive domain for complex activities, It is designed as an oasis of leisurelyactivity & recreation which provides relief to the employees and the generalpublic from the hustle of their daily work routine. In this regard, the inclusion ofPublic recreational spaces such as Square’s/Plaza’s,Parks,Restaurants/Food-courts, retail stores, Sporting facilities etc.., also adds to the inclusive nature ofthe project.•The process also assesses the factors that affect the development of theproject w.r.t economics and user requirements of the area of development. Asa result of this study, uses such as residences are also included in thedevelopment mix. The project is a mix of offices, retail stores, residences andgreen/recreation spaces. The project tries to accommodate multiple uses in aharmonious manner, without one activity standing at odds with the other.•The study tries to question the model of development that we’ve recognizedover the years, where such developments tend to be worlds within themselveswhich are devoid of any interaction with the city in which it exists and are veryhostile to the presence of outsiders in its campuses’. It tries to find solutionsand suggest measures to make businesses more sensitive to the socio-economic & cultural Background of the city. The incorporation of Public-space’s creates a sense of ownership and belongingness to the area. Theresearch also looks at the Corporate Social Responsibility (C.S.R) aspects ofthe corporations, and how Architects/Urban Planners can help play a majorrole in delivering such responsibilities.Thesis ProjectURBAN REFLECTIONS
