About This Project
After Peeragarhi overpass’ development, Rajagarden overpass offered a much larger stretch and completely different urban context. Landlocked between the two side roads with vibrant upcoming central business district on one side and a residential neighbourhood on other side, the stretch carried an enormous potential to reconnect these two parcels and become a relief area offering alternate actives to rejuvenate the space.
There was an excellent opportunity for use of waster space under flyover to fill in with a social requirement, however, this was an urban design challenge.
Therefore, a cultural centre was conceptualised which could be accessed from either sides through the underpass. With high grill and planter on the perimeter, the area was secured against noise booms from traffic around and people crossing from non designated places. Art walks, kiosks, temporary structure spaces and capsules with tensile roofs added forms and a unique dimension to it.
