Morphology of Greenfield city projects

By - Anoop Jha

Finding urban and regional morphological context for a Greenfield Development

Deciding a spatial form for a new green field city is rather tricky than the expansion of existing city in terms of defining language of city. What makes difficult to perceive the future form of Greenfield city is the lack of immediate spatial context. So planners have to distinct choices to make in term of deciding built form of city, one is to create something out of imagination, experience, and knowledge which might or might not relate to the regional and cultural fabric and the other choice is to create some city form which is responsive to the regional fabric and climate, and which is contextually sound on different parameters like architecture, street network and form etc.
