An Arts and Urban Design based placemaking initiative for Gurgaon based issues. Our first project was the Re-Imagining of the Leisure Valley Park, reconfiguring it around a series of interactive art installations and landscaping, to create a series of smaller parks with their own personality.
The proposed plan added and reconfigured access points, public conveniences and highlighted spaces which could host a variety of activities and larger groups for performance, relaxation, community participation workshops and city wide public events. Suggestions were also made for Public Engagement and possible collaborations for funding, maintenance, outreach and collaboration.
The G Collective comprises artists, architects, photographers, horticulturists and urban designers. (Kavita Jaiswal, Veer Munshi, Jagannath Panda, Arun Kumar HG, Manissha Khanna, Aman Jaiswal and Studio CoDe)
As continuation of our teaching, we have several groups of students visit us to learn about the Architectural profession and our work. Several groups have been from our alumni, the Sushant School of Art and Architecture and there is always a lively discussion after the presentation
