help me for a place making project

Postby arch-i-tech-ur » Wed Jul 05, 2006 4:37 pm

I have to do a project named place making
Actually its a project to bring human activities to a dead space.
The provided site is a religious monument which is now acting as a traffic island cause a road run round the site.
The first problem of the project was to provide a way to pedestrian whic I solved by changing some traffic routes and provinding a pedestrian path to connect the site.
Now the second problem I am facing is how to provide a reason to the people to visit the site.
The site is religiously important to some group of people so its now being a target to only those people for others its dead.
Since the site is on the major part of the city and monumental zone, its should be able to attract the rest of the people.
I just dont want to create a market space since its very near to a popular commercial zone.
Can any one suggest how I can attract people to my site.
Something innovative!:D

hallo Sandeep,
i think the best way for your referencess is between "place marker" or "landmark".
Place making is to associate people sense towards the place and at the same time creating a people place.
Example - arch of triumph at the center of France.........
How to attract people to ur site?............i think there must be a nature of the site that link the surrounding people with it. that is the masterpieces of the area and just govern it with ur project.... least this will help u...
sorry for the unconvinience..............
