Asian Urbanism Lab Ahmedabad (India)

This interdisciplinary intensive studio is open to master-level students in FBE and is a collaboration between the Centre for Environmental Planning and Technology (CEPT) and UNSW Built Environment.

Students will have the opportunity to investigate the urban fabric of Ahmedabad which has a blend of historic architecture as well as 20th century buildings by Pritzker winner B. V. Doshi and acclaimed designers Le Corbusier and Louis Kahn. In addition, students will propose strategies for improving the built environment to make selected urban spaces more sustainable and appropriate in terms of climate, culture and history.
