Urban Land 

Land-use map describes the existing purpose each plot of land serves and the location, distribution and total area of different land uses at the precinct level.

Floor space index (FSI) is an indicator of built density and expressed as the ratio of floor space (Built-up) to the plot area.

Public Space

A figure-ground diagram illustrates the relationship between built and open space in precincts. Open spaces such as streets, parks, natural features and plazas are represented by white, while  black indicates buildings.

Nolli's map is utilized as a method to identify different types of public realm in students’ precincts.The map is then used to also analyze the degree of ‘public-ness’ basis access restrictions pertaining to gender, time, age and cost.

PRIY BHUSHAN

The portfolio gives an overall theme of the precinct, which has developed through decoding different planning parameters. The geography is the prime factor which shapes the built density of Jewar. Because of the risks of the Yamuna flood in the area, people started to settle on the high plains. Due to the limited high surface, the built densified at a higher point and started emerging in a concentric pattern. The pattern is changing their nature because of infrastructure development on the edges of the town. And bringing various opportunities for villagers for which they were waiting for a long time.
