Lucknow Town Centre – Concept Plan Review


In 2008, Urbanism+ worked with Woodhams Miekle Zhan International to conduct an Urban Design Review of the Concept Plan for Lucknow, the capital city of the state of Uttar Pradesh, in Northern India. The review highlighted opportunities for improvement of: the movement network – to increase legibility and connections; the open space network – to provide an integrated series of open spaces and clear drainage pathways; the pattern of land use – to provide a balance of employment, living and recreational opportunities. Urbanism+ proposed a series of initiatives that improved the development efficiencies and urban economics, consolidated the open space areas to form a meaningful open space corridor, lined high amenity areas with high density group housing, and supported the movement networks with visual links to ensure that travel is direct and easily understood.
