‘Cities for People’ – CoLab Lecture
In the CoLab/Goethe panel discussion on ‘Reclaiming Public Space for People’ held in May this year, Naresh spoke about ‘Cities for People.’
He discussed the processes in Indian cities today that are undermining the public spaces — namely, automobile-isation, infrastructure-isation and security-isation. Through a historical evaluation of making of public spaces in Bangalore, he reflected on what it takes to make public spaces, what is the design process for making/re-claiming public spaces for people.
Here is a copy of the presentation on ‘Cities for People.’ The presentation can also be accessed at Sildeshare.
