Emerging Sidewalks 170712 from Ankita Chachra on Vimeo.


With streets are the most interactive and dynamic public realm. Thinking of sidewalks as a string of linear plazas,  a  little Urban Insertion can make these streets, more interactive with its users and their temporal needs. The para metrical idea is further deploy-able in any  openscape.

Emerging Sidewalk is a dynamic parametric system strip, which is sandwiched between the primary sidewalk base and its top. It can be a shade…it could be a bus stop or a food stall…it could be a table or a bench..or it could be just a mere planter. It modestly plays with different anthropological heights to suit the required intent of its users and space.

What if...
