      Authors: TANU SHREE
      Pages: 1 - 8
      Abstract: One of the intense problems that the planet is facing Environment pollution. In India, increasing population, industrialization and urbanization are prime contributors to the present. Collecting, treating and disposing of domestic and industrial wastewater is a serious problem that needs to be addressed to prevent environmental damage. Untreated sewage discharge is the  most important cause  of surface and groundwater pollution in India. In India, there is a big gap  between household wastewater generation and treatment.The world faces the problems of wastewater treatment and disposal due to the lack of cost-effective treatment methods. Also, for providing treatment facilities and disposal of the treated effluents, huge capital investment is required. Due to the high treatment costs, wastewater is discharged directly  into  rivers and nearby water bodies, contaminating the water sources available to society. This problem is profound for developing countries like ours.When using plant species to treat wastewater, & RZTS; is used of promising properties of wastewater treatment. In India, the Auroville global community firstly implemented this project with the help of  Bremen Overseas Research and Development Association (BORDA Auroville is now a pioneer in the RZTS enabling many such plants across India. Another example to refer is that of the Aravind Eye Hospital, Pondicherry developed by Ascenso Management & Consulting Services.Through this paper a model has been attempted for “Zero water discharge” wherein domestic wastewater is treated using RZTS and effluent water is reused/recycled in a manner to consume total wastewater within boundary of the building. Also, an assessment has been done with respect to contribution of the proposed model in achievement of Points as per GRIHA 2019 and IGBC v 3.0.

  • Assimiliting Third Place Architecture in The Indian Context

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Pratul P Choudhary
      Pages: 17 - 34
      Abstract: Over the years, the term “third place” has found a mention in the works of multiple urban sociologists and political scientists to refer to our social surroundings separate from the two usual social environments of home and work which are typically categorized as “first place” and “second place” surroundings respectively. Despite the wholesome lifestyle benefits the “third place”
      surroundings offer, the term “third place” has not found its true essence with respect to the Indian context. Through this research, the concept of “third place”, as defined by Ray Oldenburg, has been visualized to suit the Indian context. This helps to understand the idea of community spaces which
      would eventually lead to an integration of isolated societies and also promote wellness, particularly in Indian metropolitan cities. This has been achieved by moving from part to whole in connecting housing societies, and then the city as a whole. The research includes studying the proximity of these
      “third places”, the process of making these places an interactive zones and the resultant connectivity would lead to a ‘habit of association’. Embracing “third place” architecture with the current joyless economy would result in better understanding of familiars, strangers, and familiar strangers.

  • Decentralization Strategies for Ludhiana city (Implications for balanced
           Regional Growth)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Vishakha Girdhar
      Pages: 35 - 45
      Abstract: The goal of the current paper is to evolve certain spatial strategies for the Ludhiana City that include a polycentric system of settlements. Cities all over the world have experienced several hurdles over the years, and these challenges have hurt their development, efficiency, and performance, resulting in a
      slew of dangerous issues. In recent decades, Ludhiana city has also witnessed unprecedented population growth as well as physical growth. A close understanding of the dynamics of urbanization is important for managing the negative impacts posed by urban sprawl. A detailed study has been done
      to understand the push and pull factors that compel the inner-city population to move outwards to the Peri-urban areas and on the other hand, other certain factors pull or attract the Peri-urban population or the population from different parts of the country to come in the center or city. The final findings of
      the study include causes of centralization, its negative effects, forces of development of economic and social activities, problems associated with urban development, physical and environmental implications concerning haphazard growth, non-compatible land uses, and the recommendations to be
      applicable for the planned and balanced regional growth.

      Authors: Shanmukh Mallapureddy, Ishita Garg
      Pages: 46 - 50
      Abstract: Precast/prestressed concrete construction has been promoted over the past half-century on the premise of cost savings in materials and labour, increased product and craftsmanship quality, and construction speed. Contractors’ familiar with precast technology have typically relied on this style of building with great success for solely economic reasons. However, in recent years, pre - cast concrete industry has taken on a whole new meaning in terms of its social and environmental implications.
