Dilli Haat (Delhi’s marketplace) has been planned as a democratic
space for the city.
Public space is integrated within the backdrop of a food and craft market
to create an ambience reminiscent of traditional Indian bazaars.
This is an egalitarian space where people from all sections of the society
come to buy crafts, to eat, to relax to engage in diverse social interaction.
The project has nearly 100 crafts stalls, food courts, a spice market,
an art gallery, an amphitheatre, a restaurant and conference facility.
The buildings are single-storied and built around landscaped courts
The front part of the Haat has been elevated to provide a parking
space for around 350 vehicles.
A road along the perimeter of the site provides access to supporting
infrastructure that includes a dormitory for visiting craftspeople.
Constructional aspects about the site:-
The buildings, constructed in exposed brick and stone, with shady verandahs
have been inspired by the vernacular architecture of the region.
The upper level plaza buildings have vaulted green roofs – a design feature
used for the first time in a public space in the city.
The green roofs and plazas are irrigated with recycled water produced by an
onsite Sewage Treatment Plant.
Material selection :-
The selection of material, construction and layout was made to maximize
thermal efficiency and minimize energy consumption.
Nearly all areas are illuminated by natural daylight and are naturally
The brick and stone used in the project have been sourced from the surrounding
Materials were selected for their durability and enduring qualities.
The building vocabulary has been kept understated and the scale intimate
to ensure that the buildings do not overwhelm the crafts being sold.
