Puncture in Fabric

The context of M.G. Road, Church street, and surrounding areas is a woven dense fabric with juxtaposing social and public activity layers. The project addresses the need for respite in this urban fabric by creating a punture in form of a plaza. The essense of the site, its vigour and spirit is sustained by continuous interaction of market and performance spaces with the puncture (plaza).

Focus - the void of plaza and how it encloses the market and performances to enhance the experience o
f lingering people.

Personal interest - Hole in the dense fabric of the built and its effect on thoughts of the lingering population based on patterns of usage of space.
