The proposal for Rethinking Khan Market by Vandana Sehgal animates a typical model town type market into an experience of ultimate recreation. It will not consume energy as much as a regular shopping mall, but will have the ambiance and synergy of one, hybridized with the openness of an Indian bazaar.
