Landscape As Urban Infrastructure

Authors(2) :-Barkha Soni, Rajeev Parashar

The main objective of paper was to analyze and understand the working of landscape with urban form and also how the natural landscape which has been neglected consequently, can be enhanced by using the available infrastructure. This paper explains the glory, denial and revival of nature in two parts; the first part i.e. “landscape as urban infrastructure” explains about the natural heritage of a place, how it used to function as infrastructure of city and how it functions as an artifact; it also includes the criticism on denial of the natural system and how it is being used presently. The next part i.e. “urban as infrastructural landscape” deals with the rejuvenation of the disrupted nature and how it can work well and utilize the constructed infrastructure as its potential. Concluding that both infrastructure and landscape are integral part of the city and both are equally important; if infrastructure leads to the development of the city, then nature was the first reason to develop. The concept of paper has been supported through case study of Bhopal city.
