After 110 days of productive practicum (internship) on semester seven, 52 students gathered back to college to accomplish a neighbourhood planning assignment as per the syllabus of the Design studio VII here at Kathmandu engineering college.
The detail terms of reference, project background, working schedule for the project called Community development for the 1000 families in the urban fringe of Kathmandu valley were prepared by the department of architecture, Kathmandu engineering college is attached here.
10 groups were divided each having 5 students per group as per the wish of the student. First warm up exercise was held where every group had to present theoretical presentation on the urban planning theory.
Group 10 consisting Saurav Bhardwaj, Saurab Adhikari, Swornima Shakya, Bhasan Gurung and me alongside completed our initial warm up presentation on urban planning theories, especially focusing on the planning principle and theoretical models like central place theory, Burgess concentric models, multiple nuclei models etc.
After warm up session we were provided with a two site at outer core of Bhaktapur, Nepal.
Out of two site our supervisors and course tutor provided us with one site per group. Our group was scheduled to start the design problem with reference to site number 1.
I have tried my best to compile the 3 best site analysis and program formulation by 3 groups. Lots of thanks to P. Gautam and her group, S. Tamrakar and her group, A. Maharjan and her group for sharing those intense research on two site and its Programme parameters.
