This design challenge has been conceived by Young Leader for Active Citizenship (YLAC) and Sensing Local and is being conducted in partnership with Janaagraha, Doddanekundi Rising and Banaswadi Rising. We invite proposals to reimagine two typical neighbourhood scale public spaces in two wards of Bengaluru – Doddanekundi (ward 85) and Banaswadi (ward 27).
And the other site in Banaswadi builds on the idea of place-making where the aim is to revamp a long defunct buffer space on either side of a rajakaluve – an ‘urban void’, and design it to become more functional and usable by the residents of a neighbourhood.
The winning entries will be facilitated to pitch their ideas to the BBMP for implementation. There is also a prize money of ₹50,000/- for each site!
