Barapullah Springs

MVRDV’s intensive research study and masterplan for Barapullah Springs presents a vision for the rehabilitation and renewal of an open sewer in the heart of New Delhi, India. The project is an innovative yet feasible policy proposal to test a new method of good governance with a direct re-investment of funds generated on site for the larger public well-being. Using the existing infrastructure as a starting base, the design creates a vital new thoroughfare for the city that not only ensures access to clean water for vulnerable populations, but also connects the city’s neighbourhoods and cultural treasures with a comprehensive slow-traffic corridor. The project also offers a strategy to include bicycle lanes and shaded pedestrian promenades throughout the city.
