Interactive Session on Designing Streets in the Heritage Precinct

Interactive Session on Designing Streets in the Heritage Precinct

As part of the Virasat Pune Heritage Festival 2014, Sustainability Initiatives organized an ‘Interactive Session on Designing Streets in the Heritage Precinct’ of Pune. The discussion aimed at understanding people’s perspective towards Pune’s heritage. The workshop began with a presentation depicting the state of the heritage streets in Pune city in comparison with those in other countries. The presentation was followed by a discussion with three different groups- each considering three different heritage streets. The three streets that were considered in the exercise were-

  • Parts of Bajirao Road and Shivaji Road encircling Shaniwar Wada,
  • River-side Road (From temporary circus ground to Omkareshwar temple)
  • Road stretch between Sarasbaug and Baburao Sanas ground

Each group discussed the various problems that were faced while using these streets and suggested their solutions for making better value of the streets and its heritage through proper planning. Google images and photographs of every street were given to the respective groups for better understanding. Further each group discussed their views and tried to give sustainable solutions for better functioning and managed streets. The groups comprised of PMC officials from Heritage Cell, Road Department, Architects, Developers, Students from Town Planning and other interested Citizens. The discussion was concluded with a presentation of the street design plan by proposed by each group.
