Published on

What becoming a World Class City could mean for people of Delhi......
A world class Delhi is not about building bigger highways and flyovers, and continually "cleaning" the city's poor out of visibility of the rich.....
Being a World Class City could mean a win-win situation for all the inhabitants and decision makers of the city..... be it rich poor - young old - male female.... making it a truly democratic capital city.

  4. 4. Q. Can a woman walk alone safely on the streets of Delhi after 7 pm? “Delhi is India's crime capital..” – TOI, June 2008 “The most unsafe time out - 40% felt unsafe between 8 and 10 am and 5 and 7 pm. 31% felt unsafe in mid-afternoon. Most unsafe places - 45% identified buses as the most unsafe; 25% the roadside; 6.7% found bus stops...” – A Delhi Police survey on women’s safety, 05 March 2006.

  7. 7. Q. Why are buses killing people on the street every day? Streetlamps on pavements, So pedestrians on the road! A/Q. Are there enough safe sidewalks & crosswalks for pedestrians? 1 m sidewalk!!! So both buses & pedestrians are on the road!
  8. 8. Q. How many hours do you spend in traffic jams? "Smog is back with a vengeance... it's just getting unbearable… 1,000 new private vehicles being added to Delhi's roads every day” – BBC, Nov 2008 “What the completion of Metro Phase I has meant for Delhi: Phase I covers 55.79 km, carries 5 lakh passengers daily, ensures 1,650 less buses on Delhi roads, cuts 1.5 million commuter trips per day, saves 2 million man-hours per day, has reduced accidents and pollution levels by 30 percent, while saving fuel worth Rs. 650 crore per year.” – The Statesman, January 26, 2006
  9. 9. Q. Do your kids play daily at a park within 5 minute walk from your home? Neglected…. Fenced off!! Dilshad Garden Nizamuddin Over-designed! or Compromised… G.K. Delhi is the “greenest” India city with the least amount of “usable” public open spaces.
  10. 10. Q. Does your maid or driver travel for an hour every day to get to work? “Can the poor ever be legal?” – Housing and Land Rights Network, Habitat International Coalition, 2002 • Delhi has failed to integrate the rich and poor symbiotically and ‘legally’ within the city. • Lack of Community Ownership between rich and poor. • Failure to make the city’s historic precincts a part of the lives of its people.

  20. 20. Social Goal 1: Safety: 1) Make streets be “watched” through “eyes on the street” – remove setbacks and boundary walls flanking streets. 2) Promote Hawker zones at regular intervals 3) Make streets pedestrian friendly by providing Street-Amenities.

  25. 25. 2) Hawkers are good for Safety! Benefits of Hawkers: • They keep streets clean, busy, vibrant and safe. • They provide a variety of cheaper food and retail options for the public. • They express our culture. • They generate self- employment. Source: Flickr.com

  28. 28. Make sidewalks accessible for the handicapped. Source: Flickr.com Provide simple ramps at street corners
  29. 29. 3) Provide Amenities and Signage on sidewalks pedestrian cut Mid-block (every ~150 M) Hawker Zones (every ~800 M) Public Toilets Bus Disabled Stop Access Signage Bioswales Public Toilet Handicapped and blind Hawkers Zones Shaded bus stops accessibility
  30. 30. Social Goal 2: Connectivity 1) Provide high density mixed use developments (residential. office, entertainment & civic uses) with 5-min walk of Metro Stations. 2) Make transferring between modes easy 3) Design streets for Pedestrians, not just cars.
  31. 31. 1) High Density near Stations - Maximum people should Live, Work & Play within 5-min walk of RAPID TRANSIT Stations. Transit Node Express Bus Route That is the reason for success of BRT in Curitiba
  32. 32. 1) High Density near Stations - Maximum people should Live, Work & Play within 5-min walk of RAPID TRANSIT Stations. “Transportation - Landuse Pyramid” of the BRT in Curitiba: d opie N ot-C s hi ha D el Delhi has Copied Delhi forgot to copy the Curitiba “Transportation - Landuse Pyramid”! leading to the current failure of its BRT model.
  33. 33. 1) High Density near Stations - Maximum people should Live, Work & Play within 5-min walk of RAPID TRANSIT Stations. Delhi Curitiba – Delhi is still unfortunately trying to solve traffic & congestion - by building ‘flyovers’; while there is a phenomenal rate of car ownership increase, and complete failure to capitalize on the Metro and tie it with a land use and growth strategy.
  34. 34. 1) High Density near Stations - Reduces Traffic, Provides Cleaner Air: Curitiba Delhi BRT http://repositories.cdlib.org/cssd/opolis/vol2/iss1/art3/ Car Dependency & Transport CO2 Emissions decrease with increasing Urban Density near Metro/BRT Stations
  35. 35. Example: - Station areas are NOT JUST for Malls… but for creating civic spaces and ‘communities’… Case Study - Sha Tin Station, Hong Kong:

  43. 43. 3) Design Streets for Pedestrians & Transit users, NOT cars! • It is not enough to put BRT on the street. • We need to design the public realm for the BRT user, and the pedestrians. Source: John Fregonese Wilshire Vermont Station, NY
  44. 44. Social Goal 3: Clean, Green and Usable Open spaces play multiple functions: 1) Safe ‘usable’ public spaces for young, old, rich & poor. 2) Working landscapes that capture, purify and treat storm water runoff.
  45. 45. 1) Make existing Parks usable & safe! Lajpat Nagar Source: Mitali Ganguly Make Parks intimate and “watched” by surrounding buildings

  51. 51. 2) Utilize parks as “Working Landscapes”: • Utilize Parks and Open Spaces for Natural Storm Water Management. • Adopt a 3-Tier Approach: Delhi in Monsoons 1: Treat at Source 2: Natural Conveyance 3: Natural Storm (streets, parks) (minimal piping) Water Treatment • Advantages: - Reduced Flooding - Less pressure and reduced sizing for Municipal Storm Water Treatment Plants. - PREVENT POLLUTING THE YAMUNA!!

  54. 54. So - DO NOT put parking under existing parks!! Parking under parks makes Put parking over existing or new Retail… them dysfunctional as Prioritize Bikes & Scooters. storm water catchments. Source: Hindustan Times
  55. 55. Social Goal 4: Civic Pride - Rich and poor have ‘equal access’ to transit and amenities. - Poor and rich ‘coexist’ symbiotically – benefiting each other. - All citizens feel pride and a sense of ownership for the city due to active involvement in its decision making process.
  56. 56. Remove ghettos: STOP Banishing the Poor; Integrate them into mixed-income communities • Amenities and Housing for Low-income people MUST be accommodated: - NEAR Transit Facilities and Amenities. - NEAR mid to high income groups. • Low-income groups can: – work in local offices, – provide household help for richer homes – work in community gardens producing local food, etc. – also commute to other jobs easily.
  57. 57. Integrated Society Remove slums, NOT slum dwellers! - Integrate rich and poor symbiotically, with shared amenities, near Transit. Prepare for 55% Urbanization by 2050.
  58. 58. Remove ghettos: Remove concentrations of poverty and wealth. Delhi today: Redevelop existing low-income ghettos as mixed- income communities Successful Examples in the US: The Hope VI Community Redevelopment Projects: (Made Law in US in 1993), redeveloped and converted blighted, high-crime, public housing “ghettos” all of the country into thriving mixed income, multi-use communities. Some recent findings (http://www.huduser.org/publications/pubasst/hope2.html): – HOPE VI is helping residents move into the economic mainstream by stressing improved education, job training, and computer literacy. – HOPE VI is dramatically reducing crime and violence in public housing. Overall crime rates in the communities studied have been reduced by up to 72%. – HOPE VI is reducing the isolation of public housing residents. – HOPE VI is leveraging significant investments in community-wide improvements. Example: Mandela Gateway Hope VI, After Oakland, California Mandela Gateway before Redevelopment
  59. 59. Social Equality through Design: Provide equal access to Transit + Amenities to Rich & Poor Via Verde, South Bronx, NY Jefferson at Chelsea Station, NY • Density bonuses to developers for provision of low-income Housing & public spaces near stations • Density bonuses to developers for providing common public parks and facilities. FAR bonuses for developments NEAR Public Transit Facilities – to accommodate Affordable homes NEAR middle income communities. (Tax-Revenue strategy must be developed). Build homes for Poor next to stations, or on top of retail/ commercial uses – where Rich people would not live, so Property prices can be controlled. Wilshire Vermont Station, NY

  61. 61. Public spaces should be usable by all income groups… Source: Flickr.com/ mybandra.com Public Spaces must be common and accessible to all age and income groups... and NOT ticketed!!
