Hi, i am 5th year archi at the National College of Arts Lahore, Pakistan. i have a month to come up with a comprehensive and a rational solution to this urban project. so far i havent been in control of the project and it has been real frustrating for me. There are issues at the fortress stadium which will be handled with the over all Master planning of the Land Around the Fortress Stadium, and a detailed design of a building that my data would show will help in dealing with the laying issues.
The stadium was built as a avenue for the hosting of the National Horse and cattle show and for the display of Army Parade on National occasions as such as Independence Day and Defence day. the fortress stadium is located strategically and is connected with the whole city of lahore with a net work helping in making fortress accessible to people coming from any corner of the city.
the fortress stadium has grown into a hub of a number of commercial activities. the frontal area of the stadium is totally commercialized and is leased out as shops. At night there are liveily areas and dead areas around the stadium. my aim is to break the boundries and spread the loads from livily areas towards the dead areas and areas that lays vacant. now since this is my thesis i am suppose to show a lot of facts and figures and a lot of information. i have all that information recorded but it all layes scatered and needs to be properly displayed and presentable and be able to show the jury that the solution i have come up with is exactly the right soluton. now since this is a comunity and a forum of urban designers and planners who can guide students like me to go through the right process directly leading towards a logical and rational solution.
Due to the lack of proper knowledge and proper guidence i have lost my focus and interest a million of times now since its now or never situation i ask you people both professional practisoners and students to help me out with your oppinions and your knowledge to how to go about this problem from the presentation of the facts leading to the most logical solution and satisfying all the issues and considerations related to urban design and master planning of a problem as such as this.
if there are any quesstions that would make you understand the project and help you in guiding me i would be more than happy to answer them in hope to get the project handled with the most creative design decisions most logically proven a need and a feasible design solution.
it would be a big help and will be a learning experice with all you folks guiding me
