|Keywords:||ARCHITECTURE & PLANNING;ORGANISED COMMERCIAL COMPLEX;NEHRU PLACE;COMMERCIAL COMPLEXES|
|Abstract:||Recent planning of new settlements, colonies and towns have in most cases provided with seperate commercial complexes in the form of huge commercial blocks, it has been observed that large number of these organised and specifically planned commercial complexes have not been able to serve their purpose and function. There is a wide gap between the recommendations and actual growth in the case of planned commercial centres and this gulf is gracing today at an alarming rate. Nehru Place District Centre in South Delhi has been taken as the study area for this thesis project. First Master plan of Delhi (1961-1981) suggested a restructuring of Delhi from binodal (Chandni Chowk and Connaught Place being the existing nodes) to a multinodal city. Master plan proposed 15 District centres in various parts of Delhi to decentralise commercial activities and other central functions to make the district more or less self contained. Yet today the period of first master plan is about to ready. Only 3 out of 15 district centres have been almost fully developed. The short comings of the recommendations are distinctly apart.|
