Our cities today are an amalgamation of various choices and experiences of the past, made by our users, designers as well leaders. A by-product of cultures that abide in it, today's urban environment faces fastidiously changing technology and transforming lifestyle choices. ‘Communication’ has had a large impact on ‘commute’ and the meaning of ‘meeting’ is no more limited to physical. There has been a paradigm shift in the cultural perception of the built and personal boundaries and territorialities have strengthened tremendously. The quality of indoor and outdoor in an urban space determines the quality of interpersonal relationships as well and health and well-being of its users. It is hence important to plan and design spaces that are capable of accommodating transformation. In today’s scenario ‘Resilience’ is the only constant that helps keep the cities stable. The quality and strength of this resilience determines the quality of Urban life.
TUR’s third issue titled ‘Spatial Chronicles’ attempts to discuss through a compilation of various articles, the essence and character of the various notions and practices in Urban planning, design and architecture of the present. The ever changing spatiality of our cities can be described through various filters of Environment, economics, people and place. Few of the many parameters have been listed below and your contributions are expected to revolve around them, but may not be limited to these factors.
Spatial Parameters that define Urban transformation:
Globalisation - Travel and exchange
Informal sector - Working and Living scenario
Public Space - Perception and Design
Changing Lifestyles - cultural boundaries and heritage
Physical and Virtual Presence - spatial requirements and duality of existence
