hussainabad

Lucknow, the city of nawabs is blessed to have a rich history and culture. The old Lucknow however is now a dense chaotic urban complex. We propose to rejuvenate this old city by giving it back to its people and developing it into a beautiful public space. The heritage walk, connects momuments of the old city with one another through a meaningful and experiential route that unfolds as one treads. The integrated development of Hussainabad zone in the old part of Lucknow is a step towards acknowledging heritage value through urban design. The design intent for the enhancement of the 1.3km heritage walk from the Bada Imambada to the Chota Imambada is simple and straightforward and aims to give back to the people. Surrounded by several historical buildings, the design attempts to create a panorama by tying all monuments within a walkable spine. The 12m wide pavement all along the stretch branches out to envelope the monuments and create squares that become venues for celebrating heritage, each with its own identity. Picking clues from the main spine these parks have been carefully redesigned, providing spaces that capture the essence of the place. The Master Plan envisions this zone as a heritage hub with add-on proposals like the Avadh Museum, adaptive re-use of old buildings for public functions like Information Centres, food courts, connecting with bridges, widening alternate routes etc. all essentially anchoring the transformation of this place into a fully pedestrianized stretch.
